On April 2, 2021, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered immediately to half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, as a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice of the victims of the attack at the United States Capitol on April 2.

In tribute, all North Carolinians are encouraged to join in lowering flags to half-staff in their honor.

Statement from Governor Roy Cooper:  “We are grateful for the service of the US Capitol Police Officers who risk their lives to protect and serve to keep our nation’s Capitol safe.”

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are also encouraged to fly flags at half-staff for the duration of time indicated.

All North Carolina flag announcements are issued in accordance to regulations outlined in the US Flag Code.  View the North Carolina State Government Flag Guide here (PDF).
