Gov. Kim Reynolds has extended the order to fly all flags in Iowa at half-staff until midnight on Saturday December 11, 2021, in honor and remembrance of Senator Robert Dole, who represented Kansas in Congress for 35 years, both in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. 

The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Joe Biden’s proclamation to amend the initial order earlier this week to lower the United State’s flag to half-staff for the updated 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 flags at half-staff for the same length of time.
