Presidential Proclamation Asking for Flags at Half-Staff

April 19, 2018 - A Presidential Proclamation has been issued asking Flags to be lowered to half-staff in honor and as a mark of respect for former First Lady Barbara Bush. Flags are to be lowered from now until the day of her interment which is Saturday, April 21 until sunset.

Remember if you have other flags flying with the US Flag they should also be lowered. Flags that cannot be lowered can show respect for the day by tying a black cord or ribbon to the top of the staff.
