Information About Flag Protocol
Half-Staff Notification for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The decision to fly flags at half-staff ultimately rests with the Governor, but is normally made and carried out by the Superintendent.
The Bureau of the State House notifies other state-managed facilities in Massachusetts of this decision. This notification is distributed by way of e-mail.
