Our office can request that an American flag be flown over the United States Capitol on any day of the year. Accompanying a requested flag will be a certificate of authenticity from the Architect of the Capitol. The certificate includes the name of the person or organization for whom the flag was flown, the date and the occasion. You can request a flag online with a credit card or by filling out a form and mailing it, along with a check.
Note: The pickup option for flags is no longer available. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we strongly encourage you to submit flag requests online with a credit card rather than by mail. During this period, processing times for flags flown over the Capitol is 4-6 weeks.
