I have made some searches, but I can't find an answer to my question. It's about the flags that can be purchased to have been flown over the US capitol building. Does anyone know the procedure they go through to fly them over the capitol? Does someone simply raise a flag over the capitol then lower it? I have even heard someone suggest that they just put them in a plane and then fly them over the capitol, but that sounds a little far fetched. I want to get one for my son for when he receives his Eagle award in Boy Scouts, and I'd also like to know how it's done. Thank you for any information you can provide.
