Flag Half Staff


flags are flown at half staff in mourning. Only the President or a State Governor can order when and how long the American Flag is to be flown at half staff on Government or State property.

This gubernatorial order applies to:

1.  The main or administration building of each public institution of the Commonwealth, e.g. town and city halls

2.  Other state-owned or state-controlled buildings

3.  All state military installations
