Flags are available in different sizes and fabrics. All flag purchases include a dedication message, which may be customized for the recipient.

Flags flown over the Capitol include a certificate, which may be personalized for a particular person, event, or organization.

The order form will allow you to pay online with a credit card or create a printable order for you to print and send to our office with your check.

Care of the Flag

Clean your flag regularly. Outdoor flags can be hand-washed with warm water and a mild soap, then rinsed and laid flat to dry. Professional dry cleaning is recommended for indoor flags. Damaged flags can be repaired and used 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.
