Flag Requests

As a service to constituents from North Carolina, Senator Burr will send a U.S. flag that has been flown over the U.S. Capitol to those North Carolina constituents who request one. Many constituents request flags for ceremonial or other purposes. If you desire, a flag can be flown over the Capitol on a specific date.

Flags must be paid for before they can be flown. Therefore the office cannot accept flag requests via fax or phone. A check or money order for the complete amount must accompany each request before a flag can be ordered. Please make your check or money order payable to "Keeper of the Stationery." Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery of your flag after it has flown. 


Please use this form to request a flag flown over the Capitol.


Enhanced screening due to recent events surrounding suspicious mail coming into the Capitol Complex may cause delays. Please allow at least 10 days for your request to arrive by mail.

Completed forms and payment should be mailed to:


Senator Richard Burr
Attention: Flag Coordinator
217 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510


Only flag requests from North Carolina residents will be accepted. Please contact Senators from your state to request a flag. To obtain the phone number for the Senators in your state, please call (202) 224-3121.
