Memorial Day: Proper Flag Display


Displaying the state and national flags is an important duty in carrying out our mission for the people of the state of Texas.  The proper display of flags leads the people into times of joy and mourning, and into times of reflection and celebration. 

On the morning of Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day), both the U.S. and State of Texas flags should be raised briskly to full-staff and then slowly lowered to half-staff until noon.  At noon, both the U.S. and the State of Texas flags should be raised briskly to full-staff for the remainder of the day.  Flags should be at full-staff on Tuesday, May 29.  

These requirements only apply to days that your institution normally displays the flag.  

Please read Best Practices Concerning the Flying of State and National Flags for the general rules and Statutory References for Proper Display of the Flag for proper procedure.
