Iowa Flags At Half Staff For Patriots Day

All flags in Iowa are at half staff Friday in honor of Patriots Day. Governor Kim Reynolds says the gesture is meant to honor everyone who lost their lives during the nine-eleven attacks 19 years ago.

Flags will be lowered to half-staff from sunrise on Friday, Sept. 11 until sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 12.

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.
