While a few people have already stated how its legal to burn a flag in protest, i believe that when a flag has become unfit for displaying the pride of america i.e. it becomes torn and tattered, the proper thing to do is build a small fire pit (or use one already made) and burn it. kind of like a viking funeral to honor it.

That's part of flag code. If a flag has become too damaged to properly symbolise its country, it must be disposed of in a respectful manner either by burying or by burning.

Supreme Court case of Texas v. Johnson in 1989 overturned 49 state laws that stated flag burning was illegal. Desecrating the American flag by burning it is considered freedom of speech, and is protected by the First Amendment.

It's not though.

Due to the first amendment and two Supreme Court cases (Texas v. Johnson and U.S. v. Eichman), it is unconstitutional to prohibit flag desecration, because it counts as "symbolic speech."

It's not, it is legal to burn the flag. "Overturning a Texas law in 1989, the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that burning an American flag in protest is a form of political speech protected under the First Amendment. Congress later passed a federal anti-flag-desecration law, and the high court invalidated it on the same grounds."

"The flag of the United States is sometimes symbolically burned, often in protest of the policies of the American government, both within the country and abroad. The United States Supreme Court in Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989), and reaffirmed in U.S. v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990), has ruled that due to the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, it is unconstitutional for a government (whether federal, state, or municipality) to prohibit the desecration of a flag, due to its status as "symbolic speech." However, content-neutral restrictions may still be imposed to regulate the time, place, and manner of such expression.

In 1862, during the Union army's occupation of New Orleans in the American Civil War, the military governor, Benjamin Franklin Butler, sentenced William B. Mumford to death for removing an American flag. In 1864 John Greenleaf Whittier wrote the poem Barbara Frietchie, which told of a (probably fictional) incident in which Confederate soldiers were deterred from defacing an American flag. The poem contains the famous lines:

"Shoot, if you must, this old gray head,
But spare your country's flag," she said.

During the United States involvement in the Vietnam War American flags were sometimes burned during war protest demonstrations.[77]

After the Johnson and Eichman decisions, several flag burning amendments to the Constitution were proposed. On 22 June 2005, a Flag Desecration Amendment was passed by the House with the needed two-thirds majority. On 27 June 2006, another attempt to pass a ban on flag burning was rejected by the Senate in a close vote of 66 in favor, 34 opposed, one vote short of the two-thirds majority needed to send the amendment to be voted on by the states.[78]"
