Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to remain at half-staff for Fallen Firefighters Memorial weekend October 7-8, 2017. Flags are currently at half-staff to honor the murdered and injured in Sunday night’s tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada. Flags should remain at half-staff until sunrise on Monday, October 9, 2017.

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be at half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.
