Fly your flag over USS CONSTITUTION!
USS CONSTITUTION's Flag Coordinator honors all requests to fly national ensigns (U.S. flags) of recognized current and historic configurations, U.S. Navy Jacks and other flags of service, state and federal government agencies. We cannot fly flags of other nationalities or any flag which could bring discredit to the naval service.
All flags are required to have metal rings or grommets to allow the flag to be hoisted. Nylon, all-weather 3'X5' flags are available to purchase from USS CONSTITUTION.
Payment information: If you would like to purchase one of CONSTITUTION's 3'X5' flags, send a total of $35.00 ($25.00 for the flag + $10.00 for shipping and handling) cash or money order ONLY (checks will NOT be accepted) made payable to "Constitution MWR". If you are sending your own flag to CONSTITUTION to be flown, you must include $10.00 cash or money order with your flag for shipping and handling.
