Help Honor Those Who Are Serving
Looking for way to reach out to our troops overseas? Consider sending a flag through the Secretary of State Flag Fund.
In 1969, the Oregon Legislature gave authority to the
Secretary of State to provide Oregon State flags to Oregonians serving the
armed forces. For many years, the Legislature was unable to provide funding for
the Oregon State Flag Fund. In 2011, Secretary of State Kate Brown teamed up
with Sen. Betsy Johnson (D-Scappoose) and Rep. Sal Esquivel (R-Medford) to revive the State Flag Fund. Thanks to that successful effort, the fund
has sufficient resources to provide flags to any Oregonian serving in the armed
If you are serving and would like a flag or know someone who qualifies, please contact our Business Services Division.
