As a citizen did you know that you can have the American flag flown at the U.S. Capitol building to memorialize a special event in your life? Perhaps its a birthday or a graduation, a marriage or a divorce. The only charge is for the flag (3'x5') which is under $20 including shipping. Also you will be sent a certificate with your flag showing the date it was flown. What a great way to remember that special event.
How to have your flag flown at the US Capitol: Simply contact the office of your U.S. Senator or Congressman and request the form to have a flag flown at the Capitol. You send the form back with payment and before you know you will receive your flag and certificate.
How to fold the American flag: Fold the flag in half width-wise twice. If done by two, then the blue field should be facing the bottom on the first fold. Fold up a triangle, starting at the striped end ... and repeat ... until only the end of the union is exposed. Then fold down the square into a triangle and tuck inside the folds. See diagram for Folding the American Flag.
