Flag Lowering - 7/18/20 (Rep. John Lewis)

Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation below, Governor Inslee hereby directs that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff immediately, in memory of Representative John Lewis, of Georgia, who passed on Friday, July 17, 2020 from his long-standing battle with cancer.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Saturday, July 18, 2020. However, because of the delayed notice, the Governor’s Office has no objections to flags remaining at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Monday, July 20, 2020.
