United States Flag: Half-Staff
Commonwealth Flag: Half-Staff


As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on May 26, 2021, in San Jose, California, the President of the United States has ordered that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, May 30, 2021.


Governor Tom Wolf ordered commonwealth flags on all commonwealth facilities, public buildings and grounds fly at half-staff from March 11, 2020 until further notice to honor the victims of the 2019 novel coronavirus pandemic.

Commonwealth flags should be lowered to half-staff until a date to be announced after the pandemic passes.

All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.
