My 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. The flag and certificate make great gifts for honoring special occasions and anniversaries.
OPTION 1: Complete your flag request online
Make your request through our office’s Pay.Gov website, an online payment processing service run by the U.S. Treasury Department that accepts a variety of electronic payment methods. From this site, you can specify your desired flag specifications and shipping information.
