Governor Orders Flags to Half-Staff on 5th Anniversary of Sandy Hook Tragedy

Gov. Dannel Malloy is issuing a directive for U.S. and State of Connecticut flags to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Thursday, Dec. 14, in remembrance of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

The shooting killed 20 first-graders and six educators on Dec. 14, 2012.

Since no flag should fly higher than the U.S. flag, all other flags – including state, municipal, corporate, or otherwise – should also be lowered during this same duration of time.
