Flag Requests

History of Flags Flown over the Capitol for Constituents

Constituents may purchase a flag that has flown over the Capitol. You may request this to commemorate a specific day or event. However, you should plan ahead as this process takes about four weeks.

A certificate, stating the date the flag was flown, for whom and the event for which it was flown, will be sent to you along with your flag.

The current prices for flags are as follows:

Size/Material Flag Flying Postage Total
3 x 5 Cotton $11.00 $7.00 $7.05 $25.05
3 x 5 Nylon $10.00 $7.00 $6 $23

5 x 8 Cotton $23.00 $7.00 $8.85 $38.85
