Flags lowered: Governor Kate Brown Orders Flags Lowered To Half-Staff In Honor of Barbara Bush

Salem — Governor Kate Brown ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff in honor of the late Former First Lady Barbara Bush. In accordance with the proclamation by President Trump, flags were lowered to half-staff until sunset on the day of internment.

“First Lady Barbara Bush set the bar high for service and dedicated herself to bettering the lives of millions of Americans,” Governor Brown said. “Her legacy is marked by a kindness and compassion that made an indelible impact on what it means to be a public servant.”

The White House also issued a national flag order.
