Flag Requests

Flag Order Form

As your Representative in Congress, I am able to have an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol on your behalf.  Flags are accompanied with a certificate of authenticity and will be mailed to you.

Flags can be flown on the first available date or, subject to availability, on a specific date.  They can also be flown to recognize a specific occasion, such as an anniversary, a birthday, the birth of a child, a graduation, the death of family member or friend, a retirement, or a wedding. 

Please use this form to order a flag.  To help ensure order accuracy and timely processing of requests, please submit separate requests for each flag you would like flown over the Capitol.

Care of the Flag

Most outdoor flags can be washed in mild detergent and thoroughly rinsed. Indoor and parade flags should be dry-cleaned. Damaged flags can be repaired and utilized as long as the overall dimensions are not noticeably altered. American Legion Posts and local governments often have facilities to dispose of unserviceable flags. Store your flag in a clean, well ventilated area.
