***The Secretary of the Senate has announced that the cost to have a flag flown over the Capitol will increase on October 1, 2014. Orders dated on or after October 1 will be subject to the new rates.***
My Washington, D.C. office will be happy to help Delaware residents purchase an American flag that can be flown over the U.S. Capitol to commemorate a special occasion, event or holiday.
Along with the flag, you will receive a certificate 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 order a flag, print and fill out the Flag Request Form. Please make your check or money order payable to "Keeper of the Stationery" and return with the completed form to:
Attn: Flag Request
Office of U.S. Senator Tom Carper
513 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
My office cannot accept flag orders via the Internet or over the phone because a check or money order for the complete amount must be received before an order can be processed. Please send the order form and payment at least four weeks prior to the fly date, and allow an additional four to six weeks after the fly date for delivery. Once a date has passed, it is no longer possible to purchase a flag flown on that date. Only American flags can be purchased and flown over the Capitol.
