Fly a Flag Over the U.S. Capitol

A United States flag can be flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington in honor or in memory of a person or special occasion, event, or organization, and may be flown on a specific date. All flags flown over the Capitol are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Please note: If multiple flags are requested to be flown, they will all be flown on the same date and shipped at the same time. If you need flags flown on different dates, you must submit separate order requests for each separate date to fly the flags.

There is no limit on the number of flags you may order. Flags may be purchased in multiple sizes and materials.

For additional questions and information on flying a flag over the U.S. Capitol, please contact Peter Van De Pol at: or call Congressman Amodei’s Washington, D.C. office at 202-225-6155.
