Flags at half-staff in honor of Memorial Day

From the Office of Governor Ron DeSantis

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – On Memorial Day, we honor the heroes of the United States military who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. May we never forget the selfless bravery of the men and women who laid down their lives to protect their fellow citizens. Our hearts are heavy with gratitude for their unwavering commitment to protecting this nation’s highest ideal of freedom in the face of grave danger.

This Memorial Day, I hereby direct the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida from sunrise until noon on Monday, May 29, 2023.
