DISPLAY OF THE FLAG AT HALF-STAFF

The flag, when flown at half-staff, shall be first hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. The flag shall be again raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.

When the United States flag is lowered to half-staff, the Commonwealth flag will also be lowered to half-staff.

Special days designated in accordance with this section for flying the flag at half-staff may be proclaimed by the Governor in any manner that he deems appropriate.
