US & Commonwealth Flags to fly half-staff.

On December 1, Governor Tom Wolf has ordered the Commonwealth flag on the Capitol Complex, at all Commonwealth facilities, and all public buildings and grounds throughout the commonwealth to fly at half-staff to honor President George H.W. Bush.

President Bush passed away Friday, November 30, 2018.

The Commonwealth flag shall be lowered for 30 days, until January 1, 2019. The United States Flag should also be lowered to half-staff for this 30-day duration due to orders from the White House.

All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.
