President Orders Flags Lowered for former Representative John David Dingell, Jr.


Flags on December 1, 2018


President Donald J. Trump has ordered the American Flag and all state and territory flags to fly at half-staff in honor of former Representative John David Dingell, Jr., the longest-serving member of Congress in our Nation's history. Flags are to be lowered immediately until sunset, Saturday, February 9, 2019.

As a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding service of former Representative John David Dingell, Jr., of Michigan -- the longest-serving Member of Congress in our Nation's history -- I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, 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, February 9, 2019. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half staff for the same period at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eighth day of February, in the year of our Lord two thousand nineteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-third.

DONALD J. TRUMP



**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.

**5:32pm** Governor Roy Cooper has also ordered flags flown at half-staff.

Governor Roy Cooper today ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered immediately to half-staff in tribute to former Representative John David Dingell, Jr. of Michigan. Rep. Dingell, Jr. is the longest serving member of Congress in our nation's history.



Flags should remain at half-staff through sunset on February 9, 2019.
