Flags Lowered

Pursuant to President Obama’s Proclamation to lower the United States Flag in honor of the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, Governor Martin O’Malley has ordered the United States Flag and Maryland State Flag to be flown at half-staff immediately. The flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. 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.
