The American flag is symbol most citizens of this country love and respect. They hang it outside their homes to tell everyone who passes by that they love their homeland, and support those who defend it and its values.

There’s also a code about how to handle the American flag, as many would know. One teen was familiar with this code, which explained why he waited outside his high school, fallen flag in hand, to prevent it from touching the ground.

So when the flag outside the Paducah Police Department in Kentucky was stolen, new ones were quickly ordered to replace it. Theirs was not the only one stolen, as many around the town had suddenly disappeared.

But the officers were taken by surprise when they checked their security camera footage just a few nights later.

In the clip, which you can watch below, an anonymous biker pulls up to the station. He gets off his bike, with a folded flag in his hand.

Then, he respectfully attaches it to the flag pole, and raises it to the top – where it belonged all along.

Now, although Paducah officers are still searching for the thief of the original flag, they sincerely thank the mysterious donor whose display of “generosity and patriotism” has warmed hearts across the country.

Please SHARE to thank this man for his actions, if you you think this biker is a true American hero!
