All state and national flags will be at half-staff until sunset on Saturday, Feb. 20 to remember Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, who passed away on Feb. 13.

President Barack Obama directed all United States flags to be flown at half-staff on Feb. 13 until the day of internment. This order included the White House, military and naval stations, naval vessels, embassies, and other facilities abroad.

State flags will join at half-staff at the State Capitol and at all state offices and agencies, including at the Hawai’i National Guard.
