This page will provide you with information on how to order a United States Flag through U.S. Rep. DeGette's Washington office.
There is no limit on the number of flags you may order. Flags can be purchased in multiple sizes. All flags are sold at cost and take approximately 4-6 weeks for delivery, depending on the availability of inventory.
If you choose to, you may have the flag flown over the United States Capitol Building. All flags flown over the Capitol are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Flags may be flown for a particular person, event, or organization, and may be flown on a specific date. 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. No flags will be flown on the following dates: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Here's an example of what a certificate accompanying the flag might say:
This flag was flown for John Smith in recognition of his retirement from teaching after 40 years of dedicated service.
As we do not accept credit card payments, we need all flag requests to be sent by mail with a check. Please use the order form to specify the flags and certificate information you would like, then print the completed order request for mailing.
