My office can arrange to have an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol for Iowans to commemorate special events or occasions. Iowans can order flags online or by mail. Orders can be submitted up to six months in advance. Flags will arrive approximately six weeks after being flown.
Flags for Fallen Heroes
Congress passed the Fallen Heroes Flag Act to pay tribute to America’s first responders who lost their lives in the line of duty. Iowans may request a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol to honor a fallen hero from their immediate family (firefighter, law enforcement officer, EMS crew member) by contacting my office at (202) 224-3744. There is no cost to families who qualify for the Fallen Heroes Flag program. Learn more about the program here.
