For more than 200 years, the American flag has been the symbol of our nation’s strength and unity. Through Congresswoman Slaughter’s office, you may purchase an American flag to be flown over the U.S. Capitol to commemorate an anniversary, birthday, or another special occasion. A certificate of authenticity will be included with the flag.
To order a flag, please fill out the flag order form and follow the steps. If you have any questions, please contact the Washington office at (202) 225-3615.
Care of the Flag
Most outdoor flags can be washed in mild detergent and thoroughly rinsed. Indoor and parade flags should be dry-cleaned. Damaged flags can be repaired and used as long as the overall dimensions are not noticeably altered. American Legion Posts and local governments often have facilities to dispose of unserviceable flags. Store your flag in a clean, well ventilated area.
