Flags to be Flown at Half-Staff Across America

The President of the United States has ordered all flags throughout the country to be flown at half-mast from now until sunset on October 30th, 2023. This is meant to be a mark of respect for the victims of the acts of violence perpetrated in Lewiston, Maine, on October 25th.

Flags will be flown at half-staff at the White House, all public buildings and grounds, military posts, naval stations, and all naval vessels.

President Biden also directs that the flag be flown at half-staff at all US foreign facilities.
