LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — An American flag is one of the greatest symbols of pride for our country. When a flag becomes worn, boy scouts in Lafayette said it should be retired in a proper way.

News 18 took a trip out to Cary Camp and met up with Boy Scout Troop 303 out of Lafayette who is showing us how to retire an American flag for Independence Day.

There was even a cool symbol that appeared in the sky as the event wrapped up! Check out the video above to see the sights and sounds from the flag retirement ceremony.
