As a constituent of the 12th Congressional District of New York, Congresswoman Velazquez’s office can process your request to have an American flag flown over the United States Capitol on a specific date to honor a person or event.
You will receive both the flag and a certificate from the Architect of the Capitol indicating the date that your flag was flown and the special occasion or person that the flag honors. When submitting your flag request, please indicate the specific reason for your flag request so that information can be included on the certificate.
Due to the high amount of requests, please submit your information at least one month in advance of the date you would like the flag flown. Also, please be aware that there is a small charge to cover the cost of the flag and shipping fees.
To order a flag, please download the flag request form (PDF) and send payment and completed form to Congresswoman Velazquez’s Washington, DC office:
Congresswoman Nydia M. Velázquez
2466 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515-2104
