President Joe Biden has ordered U.S. flags flown at half-staff to honor Madeleine Albright, the former secretary of state who died this week.
Flags should be flown at half-staff until Sunday, March 27, at sunset.
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.
