In remembrance

U.S. flag flying at half-staff

President Donald Trump has ordered U.S. flags flown at half-staff to honor Brian D. Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, the two police officers who died after the Jan. 6 siege at the U.S. Capitol.

Flags should be flown at half-staff until Wednesday, Jan. 13, at sunset.

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.

The USPS Administrative Support Manual has additional guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
