New York Battle Flag Conservation Process
What are we doing to save New York State's Battle Flags?
- Documenting the history and current condition of each flag
- Removing the flags from their staffs, cleaning them, and realigning them
- Creating a support made of archival-quality materials for each flag
- Establishing a secure space with a stable, clean environment as interim storage for flags that have been treated
