The threshold to the Flag Building is the portal to a whole new world of Scientology—immense in scale and conceived at orders of magnitude to meet the needs of a world religion. From the broadest scope to the finest detail, our spiritual headquarters represents LRH technology in every respect.
JUST BEYOND RECEPTION, the Grand Atrium soars three stories and spans the length of an entire city block. Throughout, the fundamental principles and practices of the Scientology religion are brought to life in three dimensions.

IN THE TRADITION OF GREAT CATHEDRALS constructed through the last millennia, interiors throughout the Flag Building are crafted out of Italian travertine.
THE GRAND CHAPEL
Flag’s Grand Chapel serves as the setting for Scientology Services, Weddings and Naming Ceremonies.
INSIDE, THE CHAPEL’S VAULTED CEILING rises two stories. Its handcrafted stained-glass windows are emblazoned with The Factors, LRH’s summations on the human spirit and its relationship to the material universe.
SCIENTOLOGY IS A WISDOM IN THE TRADITION OF TEN THOUSAND YEARS OF SEARCH IN ASIA AND WESTERN CIVILIZATION. —L. RON HUBBARD
GOLDEN AGE BOOKSTORE
The grand staircase leads from the Atrium to Flag’s Golden Age Bookstore. Here, one can literally walk the LRH path of research and discovery—for this is the only Scientology bookstore in the world with a chronological display of every LRH Book and Lecture Series.
THE BOOKSTORE makes available the full L. Ron Hubbard library, including all books and lectures as well as course materials.
THE BOOKSTORE serves Scientologists from across the globe, with materials available in 50 languages. The adjoining Planetary Dissemination office helps to meet the demand for Scientology materials in all parts of the world.
THE HUBBARD GUIDANCE CENTER
Flag technical delivery teams stand ready to take Scientologists through the entire Grade Chart, the step-by-step ascent to greater spiritual awareness.
THE HUBBARD GUIDANCE CENTER encompasses 14 individual centers, each reserved for a specific religious service. It’s all designed to perform at the highest technical standards, delivering processing to more than a thousand Scientologists every day.
A GRADE CHART befitting this building stands at the entryway to the interview rooms for the technical executives who guide the progress of every Flag parishioner.
EACH OF MORE THAN 250 FLAG AUDITING ROOMS embodies Standard Tech and exemplifies the level of technical perfection for which Flag is universally renowned. All auditing rooms are replete with the Flag-only edition of the Mark Ultra VIII E-Meter.
THE PURIFICATION CENTER
The Flag Building includes facilities for delivery of the Purification Program, a service that helps Scientologists free themselves from the mental and spiritual damage caused by drugs and toxins.
THE WEST TERRACE
The Hubbard Guidance Center opens onto the West Terrace, which extends the breadth of the building. With its travertine fountains, the terrace provides the perfect exterior setting for Scientologists on service at the Flag Building.
The completion and opening of the Flag Building made possible the historic release of the never-before-available Super Power—the breakthrough service L. Ron Hubbard developed for Scientologists.
CAUSE RESURGENCE RUNDOWN
The Cause Resurgence Rundown rehabilitates
the individual’s ability to generate his own energy and eliminate mental and spiritual factors that inhibit his ability to control his life.
Flag training facilities span an entire floor and encompass 16 course rooms, accommodating every aspect of technical training in our Golden Age of Tech Phase II.
FLAG’S TRAINING FLOOR has the capacity to train a thousand students at a single time. Each course room is ideally configured for delivery of every course in the Church’s Golden Age of Training.
EVERY COURSE ROOM is equipped with custom-engineered systems to facilitate rapid student progress, including computerized dictionaries.
Here, Scientologists from around the world learn to become auditors, practitioners of Scientology spiritual counseling, capable of applying the technology of auditing to help others attain spiritual freedom.
The Qualifications Division is responsible for maintaining the precise standards of application of all Scientology technology in the Flag Building.
FLAG’S KNOWLEDGE CENTER comprises the largest Dianetics and Scientology library in the world, containing all materials authored by L. Ron Hubbard in every available translated language.
The upper floors of the southwest tower are exclusively reserved for those Scientologists whose contributions and commitment made possible our cathedral. The Contributor Lounges stand in permanent recognition of those individuals and provide full-service facilities for their use while on services at the Flag Building.
ALL GREAT CATHEDRALS BEGAN THEIR BUILDING BY THE PLACEMENT OF A SINGLE STONE. THE BUILDING UNIT OF A GREAT SOCIETY IS THE INDIVIDUAL. —L. RON HUBBARD
THE GLOBAL INFORMATION CENTER
Flag’s Scientology Information Center provides the grand overview of our religious movement across the world. The extensive displays include our social betterment activities and humanitarian programs on a global scale. The Center contains more than 600 films, presented in dozens of languages to accommodate Scientologists who come to Flag from every corner of Earth.
ALTOGETHER, THE FACILITIES serve as a world center for Church activities, providing the means and materials for every Scientologist to take their place on our global team toward the creation of a better world.
AN ARRAY OF OFFICES adjacent to the Global Information Center provides Scientologists with information on every sector of LRH technology at work to build a better world.
THE BOARDROOM adjoins the Global Information Center and serves as the ideal setting for Flag executives to meet with visiting dignitaries.
SEA ORGANIZATION MUSEUM
The Sea Organization Museum is dedicated to the Church’s religious order and Flag’s heritage at sea. The museum houses the largest collection of artifacts ever assembled from the Apollo, the Flagship of the flotilla, including L. Ron Hubbard’s handwritten manuscripts. It was on board the Apollo that Mr. Hubbard originally established the Flag Service Organization. Later, with expansion exceeding the ship’s capacity, he moved Flag ashore in 1975 and established the Flag Land Base.
L. RON HUBBARD’S OFFICE AND RESEARCH ROOM from aboard the Flagship Apollo, is the centerpiece of the Sea Org Museum. The site of countless technical and administrative breakthroughs, the office stands exactly as it did when Mr. Hubbard was aboard the Flagship.
From his original Mark V E-Meter with its hand-carved case, to the overmantel with its model of the Cutty Sark, the office is authentic to the last detail.
WE HAVE WIDENED THE HIGHWAY AND BROADENED THE BRIDGE FOR ALL TO TRAVEL. —L. RON HUBBARD
A NEW FUTURE
Scientology now enters a new Golden Age, with the entire Bridge open wide for all to travel. Furthermore, with our monumental Flag Building at the top of the Bridge, we realize L. Ron Hubbard’s dream for delivery of Super Power and Cause Resurgence—services he intended for every Scientologist.
The world of Scientology is ultimately destined for the Flag Building and the numbers crossing the threshold will eclipse anything in our history. So it is, from our new spiritual headquarters, we embark on an unparalleled era of expansion. And so it is we herald a new and better world.
THE NEW FLAG BUILDING: SCIENTOLOGY SPIRITUAL HEADQUARTERS
Welcome to the spiritual headquarters of Scientology—the new Flag Building.
This architectural and technical triumph culminates an era of unprecedented growth for our religion. All began with the launch of the crusade in the name of Ideal Organizations, now spanning five continents. What followed was the recovery of the very foundation of Scientology and the Golden Age of Knowledge; next, the recovery of every L. Ron Hubbard Introductory Route at the entrance gates to the Bridge; and then, nothing less than the recovery of the Bridge itself from bottom to top, ushering in our Golden Age of Tech Phase II.
Crowning it all came the release of L. Ron Hubbard technical breakthroughs never previously available—the Super Power and Cause Resurgence Rundowns—and the opening of this Church, the Ideal Org of Ideal Orgs.
Here is a place where we can now realize L. Ron Hubbard’s vision for a better world at a magnitude commensurate with the technology itself.
This is the cornerstone of that new and better world.
