Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all state flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Friday, March 2, 2018, in honor and remembrance of Reverend Billy Graham. The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Donald Trump’s proclamation to lower all United States flags to half-staff for the same length of time.

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be 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.
