Constituents can request to have a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol to commemorate a special occasion or event. A flag certificate will accompany the flag, verifying that the flag was flown, and optional information you may submit via the form (such as the name of the recipient and/or the occasion for the flag to be flown). Please allow our office at least a month to process your request and about 6-8 weeks after it was flown for delivery. Flags are flown daily year-round, weather permitting excluding Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
PLEASE NOTE: Beginning on October 1, 2016 the Architect of the Capitol’s fee for flying a flag over the Capitol Building will increase from $6.00 to $7.00. This increase will be factored into all flag purchase totals starting on October 1.
Reminder that there is no additional fee if the flag is not flown over the Capitol Building.
