Carnation celebrated its centennial in 2012 with a full year of events leading up to the Dec. 31, 2012 100th anniversary of the city's incorporation. The U.S. Capitol also honored Carnation's centennial, and Congresswoman Suzan DelBene visited the city in April to present officials with the U.S. flag that was flown over the Capitol in recognition of the city's 100th birthday.

Accepting the flag from DelBene were Carnation's Mayor and Mayor pro tem, Jim Berger and Fred Bereswill, City Manager Ken Carter, and representatives from Carnation's American Legion Post 199, Patrick Layman of Carnation, and Bob Carpenter and Bob Suman, both of Fall City.
