Governor Orders Flags Flown at Half Staff on Memorial Day


Governor Doug Burgum directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff on Monday until noon in observance of Memorial Day. 

The Governor’s directive goes alongside President Donald Trump’s proclamation requesting that Americans display the flag at half-staff from their homes. 

Flags should be flown at half-staff until noon, at which time they should be raised to full-staff. 

Burgum is also asking that North Dakota residents observe the President’s proclamation designating 11 a.m. central time Monday as a moment to unite in prayer. 

“On Memorial Day, we honor and remember those who selflessly, laid down their lives in service to our country and defended the freedoms we hold most dear,” Burgum said in a release. “We are forever grateful and indebted to these heroic Americans for their courageous acts and sacrifices that safeguarded the liberties of this great nation for generations to come.”

Burgum also asks North Dakota to join together for the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day. 

Both Burgum and Lt. Governor Brent Sanford will be attending Memorial Day ceremonies Monday.
