President Obama has ordered flags flown at half-staff to honor Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died Feb. 13.
Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment. This date has not been announced.
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.
