Flag requests

The Capitol Flag Office has reopened with limited staffing, so we appreciate your patience during these times. We are currently accepting orders for fly dates up to December 1, 2020. If you need to request a flag fly date for 2021, please call us at 202-224-2235.

If you have a pending flag request, please reach out to Katherine Robbins at

Our office is able to assist Arizonians who are looking to purchase an American flag that has been flown over the U.S. Capitol in honor of special occasions or anniversaries. The flag will come with a certificate of authenticity from them Architect of the Capitol, including the name of the person or organization for whom the flag was flown, the date, and the occasion. With several weeks' notice, a flag may be flown on a specific date. If no date is specified, the flag will be flown on the first available date (typically within 1-2 weeks of receiving the request).

Please Note: Pre-flown flags do not come with a customized certificate but will come with a general certificate of authenticity. If you would like a custom certificate, even if the fly date does not matter, please select a flag that is not a pre-flown.

Please allow at least six weeks for your request to be processed along with additional time for your flag to be shipped.

If you have any questions, please call our Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-2235.
