Flags remain at half-staff for lives lost in Maine shooting
Gov. Josh Green ordered lowering of the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag on Oct. 20, mourning the lives being lost in the ongoing Middle East conflict.
This order is continued in respect for the victims of the Oct. 25 gun violence in Lewiston, Maine, after an Army reservist is accused of fatally shooting 18 people and wounding 13 at a bowling alley and a bar.
This updated flag order applies to the Hawai‘i State Capitol and all state offices and agencies, as well as at Hawai‘i National Guard facilities in the State of Hawai‘i.
President Joseph Biden has also ordered U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff, with his order ending at sunset on Oct. 30.
The Oct. 20 flag notice by Green ordered that U.S. and Hawaiʻi state flags are to remain lowered until further notice.
