OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR — Flag Order — Flag to fly at half-staff in honor of Arizona Sen. John McCain

Posted on Aug 27, 2018 in Latest News, Press Releases

HONOLULU – At the direction of the President of the United States, Gov. David Ige has ordered that the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag will be flown at half-staff at the State Capitol and upon all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawai‘i National Guard in the State of Hawai‘i, until sunset on the day of interment (Sunday, Sept. 2). This action is a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding service of Sen. John McCain.

“Sen. McCain was a rare and courageous American who was a true leader and public servant – in both times of war and peace. He always put country before politics. Hawai‘i sends its aloha and condolences to the McCain ‘ohana,” Gov. Ige said.
