December 7 Lowering of the Washington State

and United States Flags



I hereby direct that Washington State and United States flags at all State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff Monday, December 7, for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Please notify all of your field offices and facilities around the state.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day was created by Congress in 1994 in honor of those Americans killed or injured as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

The December 7 flag lowering is concurrent with my December 1 directive to lower flags until close of business Tuesday, December 8, for the Lakewood police officers.

Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions about this flag lowering.
