Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff immediately through sunset today, in honor and remembrance of U.S. Representative Donald McEachin, who represented Virginia in Congress. McEachin died on November 28, 2022, after a battle with colorectal cancer.   

The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Biden’s proclamation to lower the United States’ flag to half-staff.   

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.
