UPDATE – Flag lowering for Friday, September 20

Previous guidance issued this morning provided for the U.S. and Delaware flags to be flown at half staff Friday, September 20 to mark the passing of former Public Defender Larry Sullivan.

Title 29, Section 408 of the Delaware Code requires Delaware State agencies, including all public schools, to display a POW/MIA flag on National POW/MIA Recognition Day, the third Friday in September. As National POW/MIA Recognition Day is also scheduled for September 20, the POW/MIA flag are also to be flown on September 20. As with the U.S. and Delaware flags, the POW/MIA flag should be flown at half staff on that day.
