The Citizens Flag Alliance is a broad-based, nonpartisan, nonprofit, national organization, which was formed to persuade Congress to pass a constitutional amendment that would return to the American people the right to protect their flag.

Background Information

More than three million people have signed petitions asking Congress to pass a flag-protection amendment and send it to the states for ratification.

Dozens of surveys since 1989 (latest done in 2006) have consistently shown that 75-80 percent of the American people support a constitutional amendment to protect the flag. A nearly equal number sees no incompatibility between a flag-protection amendment and their right of free speech.

More than 140 organizations, representing millions of Americans, have joined the Citizens Flag Alliance since it was incorporated in June 1994. This broad-based, single-purpose organization includes ethnic groups, community-based fraternal and veterans organizations, women's groups, businesses and many more.

To date, more than 200,000 people have personally contributed to this effort because they believe in what we are doing, and more people are joining with us as individual citizens every day.

All fifty state legislatures have passed Memorial Resolutions asking Congress to pass a flag amendment and send it to the states for ratification. This is twelve more than is needed to ratify an amendment.
