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 Tuesday, 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.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business/sunset Tuesday or first thing Wednesday morning, December 8.

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