Flying the Flag at Half-Staff
- When flown at half-staff, the flag is hoisted to the peak for an instant,
then lowered to the half-staff position (half the distance from the top
to the bottom of the staff).
- Before the flag is lowered for the day, it is raised again to the top,
- If your flag is on an outrigger flagpole or mounted on a wall and cannot
be flown at half-staff, it is appropriate to drape a purple and black
mourning ribbon across the flag.
