(Governor’s Office Press Release, October 26, 2023)
Boise, Idaho – The President has ordered the lowering of flags to half-staff immediately as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated in Lewiston, Maine. The flag should be flown at half-staff until sunset on Monday, October 30, 2023.
The President’s order overlaps with an existing half-staff flag directive from the Office of the Governor to honor 36-year-old Post Falls Police Officer Nicholas McDaniel, who died while on duty Sunday. The Governor’s Office is updating its flag directive to end at sunset on Monday, October 30.
Therefore, U.S. and State of Idaho flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on Monday, October 30, 2023, for both flag directives.
