Flag Order Form
U.S. Flags that have been flown over the Capitol building may be purchased through my office. If you would like to order a flag, please fill out an order form. Please note that your order cannot be processed unless it is accompanied with payment (check, money order or credit card, please do not mail cash). Orders paid for by check and money order must be mailed to the address below, orders sent to my D.C. office will require an extra 2 weeks to process.
Please make your check or money order payable to "Lamar Smith Office Supply Account."
If the flag is for a friend or local club, please make sure to include that information so the flag certificate will be filled out appropriately. With proper advance notice, it is possible to have your flag flown over the Capitol on a specific date. Be sure to specify the desired flying date on the order form and provide a minimum advance notice of 10 business days.
Allow at least 4-6 weeks after the specified flying date for delivery. Please note that my office cannot guarantee the delivery of flags by specific dates, ceremonies, or occasions.
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 utilized 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.
