A United States flag is provided by the VA, at no cost, to be draped on the casket or urn of the deceased Veteran. It is used as a mark of respect to honor the service that the Veteran gave to the country.
After the service, the burial flag is generally presented to the next of kin. An application using VA Form - United States Flag for Burial Purposes is required.
