Minnesota Flag Requests

Requests to have flags flown over the Minnesota State Capitol for presentation to individuals or groups is a service provided by the Department of Administration's Plant Management Division.

State Capitol groundskeepers fulfill more than 300 flag requests from citizens each year. With advance notice, a flag can be flown on a specific date to commemorate a retirement, anniversary, birthday, or other special occasions. Each presented flag comes with a certificate of authenticity that can be personalized to reflect the occasion. Standard flag size is 4'x6’; the smallest acceptable size is 3'x5’.
