Flag Requests

Flag Requests

American flags are available for purchase through Jeff's office in Washington, D.C. for special events, ceremonies, gifts, or celebrations of achievement. Upon request, we can also have flags flown over the U.S. Capitol before sending them. A certificate from our office will accompany flags flown over the Capitol as a record of the event.

By online payment & web form

The quickest way to receive a flag from our office is by filling out the online order form using the link below. Flags ordered this way take approximately four weeks to process and ship.

Please note that flags flown over the Capitol on a specific date will take longer to process and ship depending on the date you request for flying. If you are submitting a flag request to be flown on a specific date, allow at least two weeks after the requested date of flight for your flag to arrive by mail.

Place online order here

Our office uses the web service Pay.gov to process online flag requests. Pay.gov is a service provided by the U.S. Department of Treasury in an effort to provide federal government agencies with a secure network for online payment submissions.

Refunds for flag orders submitted online cannot be processed after your order has been in the Pay.gov system for over 24 hours.

By check & mail

You can also purchase a flag from our office by printing and filling out the form below and mailing it with a check to:

Flag Request
c/o U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley
313 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington D.C. 20510

Please make your check payable to “Keeper of the Stationery.”

Also note that we can only accept personal checks. Checks sent must be the exact dollar total necessary for purchase, shipment, and flying of the flag over the Capitol if applicable.

Checks received by mail are screened and tested by the Senate Sergeant at Arms before delivery for the security of staff members. Please know that this handling process can take several weeks, and we will only receive your mail after it has been tested.
