USPS: Fly flags at half-staff in honor of Rosalynn Carter

To honor former first lady Rosalynn Carter, USPS facilities should fly flags at half-staff until sunset on Nov. 29.

President Joe Biden has ordered U.S. flags flown at half-staff to honor former first lady Rosalynn Carter, who died Nov. 19.

Flags should be flown at half-staff starting Saturday, Nov. 25, until sunset on the day of interment, Wednesday Nov. 29.

To fly the flag at half-staff, hoist the flag to the peak for an instant and then lower it to the half-staff position. The flag should be raised to the peak again before it’s lowered for the day.

The USPS Administrative Support Manual has additional guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
