Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome is proud to announce the establishment of City-Parish United States Flag Retirement Box Locations across Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish. These specially designated boxes will provide the community with a convenient and respectful way to retire worn American Flags, in accordance with the United States Flag Code.
The program was established by the Mayor’s Advisory Council on Veterans Affairs, which recognizes the importance of upholding the traditions and respect associated with the American flag. The council is committed to ensuring that all flags receive a dignified retirement.
The following East Baton Rouge Parish Library branches will host these Flag Retirement Boxes:
- Main Library at Goodwood
- Baker Branch Library
- Bluebonnet Regional Branch Library
- Central Branch Library
- Jones Creek Regional Branch Library
- Zachary Branch Library
