Senator Feinstein's office can arrange to have an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol to commemorate a special occasion, event or holiday.
In addition to the flag, constituents will receive a certificate, suitable for framing, stating that the flag was flown over the Capitol. The certificate will include the name of the person or organization for whom the flag was flown, the occasion for which it was flown and the date it was flown.
To purchase a flag through my office:
- Fill out the Flag Order form.
- Make check payable to: Keeper of the Stationery.
- Send order form and payment to my office 4-6 weeks prior to fly date.
- Allow an additional 4-6 weeks after the fly date for delivery.
- Be sure to include the shipping and handling fee, and the flying and certification fee for each flag you order.
- The office cannot accept flag orders via the Internet or over the phone. A check for the complete amount must be received before an order can be processed.
- Once a date has passed, it is no longer possible to purchase a flag flown on that date.
- The office can only accept orders from California residents. Those who don't live in California should contact the Senators or Representative from their state.
