Flags ordered to fly at half-staff in honor of John Lewis

Funeral arrangements have not been announced

As acknowledgements pour in for U.S. Rep. John Lewis, who died July 17, flags at government buildings across the country are flying at half-staff.

President Donald Trump signed a proclamation ordering flags at half-staff at the White House and all federal properties, including military bases, for Saturday only.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed the same for the U.S. Capitol and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made a similar declaration for Atlanta City Hall and all other city facilities. Both of those orders are in place indefinitely.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp required flags to be flown at half-staff in Lewis’ honor at the state Capitol and all state buildings. That order is in place until the evening of Lewis’ yet-to-be announced funeral and burial.
