Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that he is directing U.S. and state flags to fly half-staff on Monday, May 26, to observe Memorial Day. In accordance with the U.S. flag code, flags should remain lowered on that day from sunrise until noon.
“On Memorial Day, we honor the bravery and courage of the members of the Armed Forces who have given their lives in service to our country. They have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our Constitution and the values we hold dear, and we honor their legacy,” said Malloy, who also issued a proclamation to commemorate the day. “We especially pay tribute to the families of those who have lost loved ones in service. We are forever grateful and we will never forget what they have given for our nation.”
