9/10/201 – Flag Status Alert: United States Flag and Maryland Flag will be at Half-Staff

President Joseph R. Biden ordered the United States Flag to be flown at half-staff at midnight tonight and returned to full-staff at midnight, Saturday night (fly at half-staff for the full 24 hours of September 11, 2021) for Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance. This is to honor and pay our respects to the individuals who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001. As a matter of protocol, the Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff. No flag may fly higher than the United States flag.
