Re: Lowering of the U.S. and N.C. flags to half-staff from sunrise until noon on
As a sign of honor and respect for the sacrifices of our armed services personnel, Governor Pat McCrory has ordered all United States and North Carolina flags to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until noon on Monday, May 27th. The Governor encourages all citizens to display flags at half-staff at their homes and businesses as well.
“Please join us in remembering those who made the greatest sacrifice on behalf of our country this Memorial Day,” said Governor Pat McCrory. “Then, as flags are raised to full-staff at noon, let us all stand together and actively support the men and women who currently fight to defend our freedoms that we hold dear.”
For flag information, please contact DOA Public Information Officer Chris Mears at email@example.com or 919-807-2340. Please click on the following highlighted links to either join the North Carolina Flag Alert list serve, or view the North Carolina State Government Flag Guide.
