Flags

Due to the continuing Coronavirus situation, stay at home orders, and limited staffing issues at the U.S. Capitol complex, the processing and mailing of flag orders will be delayed.

If you need to have a flag flown on a particular day, we recommend that you contact our office to discuss your situation. Please call 202-503-5996 with any questions.

Flag Order Form

If you would like to order a U.S. flag from our office, please use the flag order form to calculate the price and shipping costs.

Flags are available in different sizes and fabrics. All flag purchases include a dedication message, which may be customized for the recipient. You may choose to have your new flag flown over the U.S. Capitol for an additional charge. Flags flown over the Capitol include a certificate, which may be personalized for a particular person, event, or organization.

The order form will create a printable order for you to print and send to our office with your check.

Care of 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 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.
