Capitol Flag & Flagpole Company began in the 1960s as a steeplejack service painting and repairing flagpoles, steeples, stacks, tanks and light poles throughout the Mid Atlantic, Southeast and South. By the late 1960s after a stint in the U.S. Navy, Jesse Murphy, founder, began quickly specializing in flagpole repair, flagpole maintenance, flagpole sales and commercial flagpole installation. He retired in September of 2022 after 57 years of service to the industry.

It was on September 1st. 2022 that Jesse's nephew, Clifton Murphy, took over ownership of the company. Clifton is also a veteran of the US Navy, making capitol flag and flagpole a second-generation family and veteran owned business.
