10 Replies to “Flags At Half-Mast”

  1. It is always good to see a flag at half-mast or half-staff correctly. Ignorant people assume ‘half’ means the middle of the pole. Not so. You drop it to one-flag-height from the top of the pole.

  2. Well, according to paragraph m-1 of the U.S. Code I mentioned earlier:

    the term “half-staff” means the position of the flag when it is one-half the distance between the top and bottom of the staff
