Flag retirement

Not only will you receive a new flag but your old flag will be retired with dignity and respect.

For the 7th year, McClain Insurance is hosting their annual flag exchange. If you’re getting ready for Flag Day on the 14th and your flag is in rough shape you can bring it to McClain Insurance in south Everett on 19th Avenue SE, just south of Costco and exchange it for a brand new flag, So what happens to the old flags? They are given to local Boy Scouts who retire the flags in a proper ceremony.

“We started this program in 2008 in honor of Flag Day as an effort to serve our community. Hundreds of Snohomish County residents have taken us up on the offer to exchange their flag. We’ve learned that one of the biggest concerns for our neighbors is not necessarily the acquisition of a new flag, but rather the knowledge that there will be a proper ceremony for the retired flag,” notes Claudia McClain, the owner of McClain Insurance Services.

“We are glad that we can help with this concern,” says McClain. “It’s the least we can do! Our deepest thanks and appreciation go out to those who serve and have fought in defense of our country and freedom!”

You can bring your worn or tattered flag by the McClain Insurance Office this Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm to exchange it for a new flag.
