Minimum Bid: $200.00

Very desirable American flag flown over the United States Capitol during the first presidential inauguration of Barack Obama on January 20, 2009. The flag has been traditionally folded into the shape of a tri-cornered hat, emblematic of those worn by colonial soldiers during the war for Independence, and housed in a military shadowbox measuring 31.5 x 9.75 x 3.5; housed with the flag are a pair of embroidered patches honoring the Air Force District of Washington and 79th Medical Wing of the United States Air Force, as well as a printed presentation certificate from Stephen T. Ayers as Acting Architect of the Capitol, which reads: “This is to certify that the accompanying flag was flown over the United States Capitol on January 20, 2009. At the request of the Honorable Debbie Stabenow, United States Senator, this flag was flown for Courtney Carpenter in commemoration of the Inauguration of President Barack H. Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America.” In fine condition.
