A pair of women swiped a “thin blue line” American flag from the front of a Brooklyn business and brazenly burned it on the sidewalk last week, new footage shows. 

The duo removed the flag, which symbolizes support for the police, from the front of Nocera Auto Repairs on 17th Street near Third Avenue in South Slope around 7:40 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said. 

The business owner, Eric Nocera, 51, reported the incident to cops two days later, around 8:30 p.m. Friday. He sent a YouTube video depicting the incident to The Post Saturday night. 

“These two low lifes claimed [sic] up my shop and took down my flag and set it on fire,” Nocera said in a text to a Post photographer. 

The footage shows one of the women sitting on the pavement as she lit the flag on fire, section by section — stopping a few times to snap photos on her phone. 

The other woman stood by and watched. 

At one point, another person showed up and appeared to talk to the duo while looking on.

By the end of the seven-minute ordeal, all that remained of the flag were a few charred scraps. 

Both women fled and remained at large Sunday. 

On election day in November, Nocera and his adult son, both Trump supporters, showed up outside MS 88 on Seventh Avenue near 18th Street and clashed with voters.

At one point, Nocera threatened to put one man “in the hospital,” according to video of the incident.
