The Maryland State Flag is still to remain lowered on Friday, April 25, 2014 in honor of Torrey Brown. However, this is to advise you that Governor Martin O’Malley has ordered the United States Flag and Maryland State Flag to be flown at half-staff on all public buildings on Friday, April 25, 2014 from sunrise to sunset. This is in honor of Petty Officer 2nd Class Mark Mayo, of Hagerstown, MD, who was killed on March 24, 2014. This action is taken under the Protocol for the United States and Maryland State Flag. Any questions on the above should be directed to the Office of the Secretary of State.
