lazzzlo Linguica Since: 21.7.02 From: Cincinnati Since last post: 4305 days Last activity: 4111 days # 1 Posted on 7.2.03 1431.20 Is there an official time frame for flying the flag at half mast? I noticed on the way home from work that 2 govt. agencies flew the flag in separate ways...one at half mast and the other at full mast. Is this up to each individual entity or is there a uniform time frame? lazzz Promote this thread!

I think for the shuttle, it was 6 days. It depends on the importance of the memorial.
lazzzlo Linguica Since: 21.7.02 From: Cincinnati Since last post: 4305 days Last activity: 4111 days # 3 Posted on 7.2.03 1543.06 Thanks...That was my question. The flag is ordered by the government then to fly at half mast depending upon the situation? Makes sense on the 6 day time frame. I'm a new citizen...just never was sure of the rules/etiquette. lazzz

Basically, the flag flies at half staff until the President (or the governor of your state) decide to rescind the order. U.S. flag etiquette

I say this in all sincerity... God Bless the USA for the way it treats and respects its flag. If only we Canadians had that reverance and patriotism... "No team that has lost in the first round of the playoffs has ever gone on to win the Super Bowl." - Dave Letterman, January 6, 2003. Gordie.ca
John Ashcroft has nothing to worry about. (politicalhumor.about.com) Kudos for Janet acting silly to raise some money, though. She showed her sense of humor on Saturday Night Live years ago, when she crashed her own dance party.
