Sign up for American Legion Flag Alerts

Interested American Legion Family members, patriots, supporters and others are now able to subscribe to the organization’s text alerts when the flag has been ordered to fly at half staff.

In recent months, the Flag Alerts continued to be dispatched whenever the president ordered flags to be lowered as part of a period of mourning. However, due to a change in text policy by phone carriers, new subscribers were unable to sign up for the alerts.

Now customers can opt-in to receive text messages for the flag alerts (those who previously signed up will not have to do so again). To subscribe to the Flag Alerts, text Flag to 534466.

If you no longer want to receive these notifications, text STOP to 534466 to cancel the service. Or email

For more information, text HELP to 534466, call 800-433-3318 or email

Please note that data rates may apply. Depending on your text plan, you may be charged by your carrier.
