2021 Flag Flying Calendar

2021 Flag Flying Calendar

2021 is here, and so is our helpful 2021 flag flying calendar. There are 5 half-staff days throughout the year. These are pre-declared days that flags will be at half-staff. The days in 2021 are:

Peace Officers DayMay 15, 2021Sunrise to Sunset
Memorial DayMay 31, 2021Sunrise to Noon
Patriot DaySeptember 11, 2021Sunrise to Sunset
Fallen Firefighter DayOctober 3, 2021Sunrise to Sunset
Pearl Harbor DayDecember 7, 2021Sunrise to Sunset

Why is Memorial Day only half-staff until noon?

The flag flies at half-staff until noon to honor the veterans that have died in service. The flag is then raised to full-staff at noon to honor living veterans.
