We usually present the Eagle with a US flag flown over the US Capitol in
a nice wooden case. You can get these through your Congressman (look
him up on http://www.house.gov) for about $20 and the case can be gotten
from a number of sources for about $20.
While you can ask that a flag be flown on a specific date, this doesn't
seem to be practical. To ask for it to be flown on the Eagle's Board of
Review date, you would have to order it 6-8 weeks ahead of that. To ask
for it to be flown on the Eagle's Court of Honor date, you would not
have it in hand for presentation on that date. Instead, you can ask
that the accompanying certificate specify the occasion as "achieving the
rank of Eagle Scout" or some such wording.
