Ordering a Capitol Flag

Ordering a Capitol Flag
Download a PDF of this page

Some families like to order a flag that has been flown over the U.S. Capitol as a graduation gift for their new Airman. This of course is a very patriotic and special gift. Some families like to have the flag flown on the day of their new Airman’s actual graduation date so the flag will not be available on their actual day of graduation, but it will certainly be a memorable gift once they get it.

All flags orders are made through your U.S. Senator or Representative. We have copied below the information provided from the Architect of the Capitol website (http://www.aoc.gov/flags) on the ordering process to include a link to a list of all U.S. Senators.  Click HERE to find a list of Senators/Representatives.

To place a flag request:

1. Visit the website for your Senator or Representative. Links to the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House Representatives are located below. Many Members of Congress have directions and order forms available online. If instructions for making flag requests are not online, contact your Senator or Representative for instructions.

2. Complete the form and return with your payment to your Senator or Representative, who will forward your request to the Architect of the Capitol.

A Certificate of Authenticity is issued by the Architect of the Capitol with each flag flown.

Only the official 50-Star flag or a past official U.S. Flag will be flown. All flags must be made in the United States. The largest flag able to be flown over the United States Capitol is 8′ x 12′.



Depending on the size of the flag, the prices range from $13.25 to $22.55 (plus shipping and handling).

NOTE: The prices above do not include shipping and handling since it varies by location.

If this is something you want to do, you will want to visit your U.S. Senator or U.S. Representative’s website as soon as possible to determine what their requirements are for timing, prices, etc.
