Governor Ige orders flags at half-staff to honor victims of attack on U.S. Capitol


At the direction of the President of the United States, Gov. David Ige has ordered that the United States flag and the Hawai‘i state flag will be flown at half-staff at the State Capitol and upon all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawai‘i National Guard in the State of Hawai‘i immediately, until sunset on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.


This action is being taken as a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice of the victims of the attack at the United States Capitol today.


"Let's take a moment to pause and grieve for the U.S. Capitol officer who was killed in the attack in the nation's Capitol, and pray for those who were injured by this senseless act," said Gov. Ige.
