USPS: Fly flags at half-staff on Sept. 11 – Patriot Day

Postal Service facilities should fly U.S. flags at half-staff Sept. 11 to honor victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

President Trump has ordered flags flown at half-staff Wednesday, Sept. 11, to honor victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

USPS facilities are required to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff this day, which is also known as Patriot Day.

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.

For additional information, refer to the Postal Service’s guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
