This page will provide you with information on how to order a United States Flag through my Washington office. These flags can be flown over the United States Capitol in honor or memory of a person or special occasion. To place your order by mail, click on the flag order form, fill in the form, then click the "Calculate Prices" button to see a customized order form you can print out and send in.
There is no limit on the number of flags you may order. Flags can be purchased in multiple sizes. All flags are sold at cost. Please allow 5 weeks for flag deliveries.
If you choose to, you may have the flag flown over the Capitol Building. All flags flown over the Capitol are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Flags may be flown for a particular person, event, or organization, and may be flown on a specific date. If multiple flags are requested to be flown, they will all be flown on the same date and shipped at the same time. If you need flags flown on different dates, you must submit separate order requests for each separate date to fly the flags.
Here's an example of what a certificate accompanying the flag might say:
This flag was flown for John Smith in recognition of his retirement from teaching after 40 years of dedicated service.
If you would like to order a U.S. flag from my office, please use this flag order form to calculate the price and shipping costs.
You will have the option for printing the completed form for sending to my office with your check.
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. The Boy Scouts of America, American Legion Posts, and local governments often have facilities to dispose of unserviceable flags. Store your flag in a clean, well-ventilated area.
