celebrate national flag day: how to get a flag from the capitol

Today is National Flag Day and here at the Happgirl studios we are proudly waving our U.S. flag. I remember how proud my WWII fighting grandfather was about flying the American flag even over our trailer. Today, my grandfather would be pleased to know that he could get a flag that flew over the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. It's a little known fact that you can write your U.S. Senator to request a flag that flew over the Capitol on a special day.

Here's how you can honor your dad, your grandfather or your sister who fought for our country.

Contact your Senator here then click on the web form under their pictures. Submit your request to them including the date that is special to you and any other information (i.e. it's honoring your grandmother who served in Vietnam.) 3-4 weeks later you will receive your flag with a letter of authenticity from the Architect of the Capitol that the flag was flown on your date (as well as the specific occasion, if requested).

Happy Flag Day!
