Flag Status

Flag status and half-staff notifications for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Flags are flying at full staff.

Information About Flag Protocol

The decision to fly flags at half-staff ultimately rests with the Governor, but is normally 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 email.
