Flag Requests

The Capitol Flag Program, which began in 1937, gives Arizona residents the opportunity to commemorate special occasions by having a flag flown over the United States Capitol. At the request of Senator McCain, flags can be flown year-round and are shipped with a personalized 8 x 10 inch Certificate of Authenticity provided by the Architect of the Capitol.  

Due to demand for flags, please allow 12 weeks processing time. Please do not request a fly date more than 3 months in advance. We cannot guarantee any return date.

*Please note that flags cannot be flown on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
