President Obama has ordered flags flown at half-staff to honor the victims of the Dec. 2 mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA.
Flags should be flown at half-staff until Monday, Dec. 7, at sunset. Flags also should be flown at half-staff Dec. 7 to mark National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
To fly the flag at half-staff, hoist the flag to the peak for an instant and then lower it to the half-staff position. The flag should be raised to the peak again before it’s lowered for the day.
