When Should Your American Flag Fly at Half Staff

When the nation is in a period of mourning, the American flag is lowered on its pole as a sign of respect referred to as “half-staff.”

During times when the American flag is flown at half-staff, state and local flags should follow suit until the flag is returned to full-staff. This period can last from one day for national days of remembrance, to 30 days in the event of the death of a sitting or former president.
