U.S. citizens may obtain a flag that has flown over the  House or Senate chamber. Members of Congress take great  pride in giving away to their constituents these patriotic  gifts that have flown proudly over the nation's Capitol. The legislators do not tell recipients of the flags that  periodically a staff aide climbs to the top of the building  with a stack of flags, runs each one quickly up and down  the pole, and then certifies it as an official Capitol flag.   PS 12 Factoid
