Flag Status Alert: United States Flag and Maryland Flag are at Half-Staff
President Joseph R. Biden ordered the United States Flag to be flown at half-staff effective immediately and returned to full staff at midnight tonight, Friday, February 18, 2022. This is to pay respect to United States Representative Jim Hagedorn from the State of Minnesota. Representative Hagedorn passed away yesterday, February 17, 2022. As a matter of protocol, the Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff. No flag may fly higher than the United States flag.
