souvenir flag for Eagle Scout

Recommended Posts

So, I'm looking for ideas on flying a flag to be given at an ECoH. Is it possible to fly a flag over Gilwell (British or American) for this purpose? Does anyone have any other unique ideas?

Your state senator or representative's office can assist with having a flag flown over the Capitol, and an accompanying certificate, sent to the Eagle Scout.  Most charge a feee for it, and many allow you to submit the request through their website.

Many of the families have done the ordering of the flag flown over the US capitol.  The request can be done via representative website.  Here is a handy sheet on the process - http://americanflagfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/How-to-Order-Flag-over-Capitol-Rev..pdf

Make it personal to the Scout - get a flag and take it on a tour. Fly it over their favorite summer camp, at the state park where he had his first campout, over the lake they learned to canoe on (that one will be trickier), etc.

our last Eagle scout received a flag that was flown over our capital, and another that was flown over the White House (or maybe somewhere else in DC).
