Flag-Lowering Orders This page contains information regarding flag-lowering orders issued by the President of the United States and the Governor of Wisconsin.

Under changes to the Flag Code made in 2007, National flags flown over Federal installations and facilities in Wisconsin must be lowered to half staff when the Governor of Wisconsin orders flags to half staff because of the death of a member of the Armed Forces. Read the text of the amendment to the Flag Code at: http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/more/micks.htm

The Governor also has the authority to order flags to half staff at all state-owned and operated facilities in the event of the death of present or former officials of state government.
