My office is pleased to help 12th District residents obtain American Flags flown over the United States Capitol Building. These Flags can be dedicated to any person, organization, or event of your choice. In addition, flags can also be flown on any specific date, including weekends and holidays. Upon receipt, each Flag will be individually boxed and include a certificate of dedication.
There are some nominal fees associated with flying a flag over the Capitol, and the price varies according to the size and material of the flag you request. All items are sold at cost and no profit is incurred.
Normal processing time for flags flown over the Capitol is four to six weeks.
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. Once completed, please print and mail the completed form with payment to:

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.
