Flags at Half-Staff

President Barack Obama has ordered the United States flag to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset, Wednesday, Dec. 7, in honor of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. This action is in honor of those American patriots who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor. As a matter of protocol, the Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff as well. No flag may be higher than the United States flag.
