East Texas business offers flag exchange event


If you'd like to replace your worn out American flag in time for Flag Day this Thursday, here's your chance.

Cozad Insurance Group welcomes anyone to drop-off tattered U.S. flags to its Lindale or Tyler locations in exchange for a new one.

Since 2016, the business says it has replaced over 145 flags through its ‘Flag Exchange' event.

Jeremy Cozad says his business is just doing a small part in spreading patriotism.

“Most people don't have the means to retire a flag properly,” said Cozad.  “So they just collect them, sometimes people come in with bags full of flags.”

All worn flags will be retired in a respectful ceremony by the Lindale boy scouts this fall.

Cozad says they will be offering the exchange until the end of the week.

The drop-off location in Tyler is 619 Chase Dr., and in Lindale, flags can be exchanged at 1428 S. Main St.
