Why Do We Fly Our Flags at Half-Mast in America?

The United States is a country that has experienced a slew of ups and downs. Certain events imprint themselves on our national consciousness forever, and we honor and mourn these events as pivotal points in our history.

The American flag is ingrained in our society as a symbol of something greater than ourselves. Without it, the world would look a lot different. In fact, we use it as an indicator that something tragic has happened by flying it at half-mast. So when and why exactly do we fly our flags at half-mast in America? Read on to find out.

Why Do We Fly Our Flags Half-Mast?

Flying our flag at half-mast means the flag flies halfway below the top of a ship mast, a flagpole on land, or a flagpole on a building. In most cases, it’s a sign of mourning—a tragedy has occurred, and flying the flag at half-mast honors the people who fell during that tragedy. For instance, we lower the flag to half-mast to commemorate 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.

States and territories in the United States are also ordered to lower all flags to half-mast when a well-known state official dies. A perfect example of this is when General Colin Powell—a notable member of the Bush administration and decorated four-star general—passed away in 2021.

What’s the History of Flying Our Flags at Half-Mast?

The earliest reference of flags flown at half-mast occurred in the 1600s, when the captain of Heart’s Ease—a British ship—died en route to Canada. To honor him, the crew ordered its flag to be flown at half-mast. The tradition has carried on ever since.

What Should We Do When We See a Flag at Half-Mast?

Express your condolences and concern by checking in on others and seeing how they’re feeling. This is one of the most important reasons we fly our flags at half-mast—it evokes the compassion and empathy of the American people.

To conclude, flying a flag at half-mast should activate our reserves of compassion. It should be a time of reflection when we try to put ourselves in the shoes of the people affected by the event. Without the compassionate concern that the flag evokes, we wouldn’t be able to use that opportunity to act within our better nature.

Noon briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: · Guests Tomorrow · Deputy Secretary-General · Occupied Palestinian Territory · Hurricane Beryl · Ukraine · Central African Republic · Senior Personnel Appointment · Resident Coordinator Guinea-Bissau · Youth Skills Day _______________ GUESTS TOMORROW Tomorrow, I will be joined by Alvaro Lario, President of IFAD, which as you all know is the International Fund for Agricultural Development and he’s also the Chair of UN-Water, and he will also be joined by Federico Properzi, the Chief and Technical Lead of UN Water. They will be here to launch the first-ever United Nations system-wide Strategy for Water and Sanitation and unveil the latest figures from the upcoming State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2024 report. DEPUTY SECRETARY-GENERAL Our Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, will travel to West Africa, as part of a wider effort to engage at country level to support the acceleration and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. This follows the SDG Summit that took place in September. She leaves tonight. Her first stop will be in Dakar, Senegal. From there, she will travel to Guinea and Mali. From Mali, the Deputy Secretary-General will then head to Ethiopia to preside over the opening of the First session of the Preparatory Committee for the Fourth International Conference on Financing for Development. From Ethiopia, the Deputy Secretary-General will return to West Africa to continue the second leg of her mission. She will start with Burkina Faso and continue on to Niger before concluding her mission in Nigeria. During the visit, the Deputy Secretary-General, will hold meetings with senior government officials, UN entities on the ground and other stakeholders, to take stock of the challenges affecting the realization of the SDGs, review the UN’s presence and support to the SDGs in these varied environments and identify ways to strengthen the impact for people on the ground. OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORY Turning to the situation in Gaza, I think you all heard a rather extensive briefing from our friend Scott Anderson, the head of UNRWA in Gaza. I can further tell you that we and our humanitarian partners continue to assist families who are being displaced from northern Gaza to areas in the south. A team from the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs carried out a mission today aimed at supporting the scaling up of services at points where families fleeing northern Gaza are arriving in the south. Furthermore, our humanitarian partners are registering displaced people so that support can be provided to them wherever they seek shelter south of Wadi Gaza. We are also planning missions to areas [east] of Salahal-deen road to assess people’s needs in that area. OCHA says that with each new evacuation directive, families in Gaza are forced to make impossible choices: stay, amid active hostilities, or flee to areas with little space and services – and of course, no guarantee of safety as we saw this weekend. OCHA also says the horrors witnessed in recent days only underscore what we have said repeatedly over the past nine months: There is no safe place in Gaza. Not shelters, not hospitals – and not the so-called humanitarian zones. We call yet again for all parties to this conflict to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law. They must take constant care to spare civilians and civilian objects. This includes ensuring safe passage for those who flee. And wherever they are in Gaza, civilians must receive the essentials they need to survive: food, shelter and health care. Making sure civilians in Gaza get the lifesaving support they need means ensuring safe and unimpeded humanitarian operations.

Hybrid press briefing by the Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory Scott Anderson, from Gaza, on the latest humanitarian developments in the Gaza Strip. New Israeli airstrikes reportedly struck southern and central areas of Gaza on Monday as UN humanitarians and partners continued to treat the victims of a deadly strike on Al Mawasi in southwest Gaza on Saturday that reportedly left at least 90 dead and around 300 injured. In an update from Nasser Medical Complex in Khan Younis where victims have been admitted, veteran UN aid official Scott Anderson reported witnessing “some of the most horrific" scenes he had experienced in his nine months in Gaza. “With not enough beds, hygiene equipment, sheeting or scrubs, many patients were treated on the ground without disinfectants, ventilation systems were switched off due to a lack of electricity and fuel, and the air was filled with the smell of blood,” said Mr. Anderson, Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator and Director of the UN agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA) in Gaza.

The following is a joint statement, delivered by Ambassador Robert Wood, Alternative Representative for Special Political Affairs, on behalf of the Permanent Missions to the United Nations of Albania, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Republic of Korea, Switzerland, Türkiye, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, and the European Union and its Member States, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden. We are deeply concerned by the escalation of violence and conflict and credible reports of violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law across Myanmar that are deepening the humanitarian crisis. Recent reports indicate the Myanmar regime has taken deliberate steps in Rakhine State to use internally displaced persons (IDP), many of whom are Rohingya, as human shields amid the conflict. We are particularly concerned by reports indicating the regime has placed landmines around IDP camps and appears to have taken steps to use these camps as military bases. There are also credible reports of forced recruitment of persons, including children, belonging to ethnic minorities by the Myanmar Armed Forces in particular and other parties, which risk further fueling inter-communal tensions and aggravating the humanitarian situation. These concerning developments follow a range of reports of other violations and abuses, particularly by the Myanmar Armed Forces, including indiscriminate aerial bombardments of civilians and civilian objects, burning of civilian homes, attacks on humanitarian workers and facilities, and restrictions on humanitarian access. These practices are unacceptable. Since the regime’s violent military coup in February 2021 and attack on the Myanmar population, the number of people in humanitarian need has risen from 1 million to 18.6 million. More than 2.9 million have been newly displaced, including 66,000 people who have sought protection in neighboring countries, adding to the more than 1 million Rohingya refugees who fled before the coup. We highlight the importance of all countries respecting the principle of nonrefoulement. We reiterate our commitment to support safe, voluntary, dignified, and sustainable repatriation when conditions allow. We also reiterate the call for full, rapid, safe, and unhindered humanitarian access to all people in need, including women, children, and members of ethnic and other minority populations. We urge the Myanmar Armed Forces in particular and all parties concerned in Myanmar to de-escalate violence, respect international humanitarian law and human rights law, and to protect civilians. We recall our demands for the full implementation of UNSC resolution 2669 (2022). We reiterate our full support for ASEAN’s central role and for the appointment of Special Envoy of the Secretary-General Julie Bishop. We reiterate calls to engage in constructive and inclusive dialogue to find a peaceful solution to the situation in Myanmar.

David Lammy has called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza during his first visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories as foreign secretary. During talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority PM Mohammad Mustafa on Sunday, the newly appointed minister also urged the release of all hostages held in Gaza and an increase in the flow of aid to the territory. "I’m here to push for a ceasefire," he said. "The loss of life over the last few months... is horrendous. It has to stop." It comes after the Hamas-run health ministry said 80 Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes in the last 24 hours. Israel said its air force targeted a number of what it called terrorists operating in the area.

Rescue teams in Tenerife have discovered the human remains of a young man in the same area where British teenager Jay Slater went missing. A spokesperson for LBT Global, the missing persons charity working with the Slater family, said “Although formal identification is yet to be carried out, the body was found with Mr Slater’s possessions and clothes”. The Spanish National Police said in a statement that they “could have died due to [an] accidental fall on the cliff and inaccessible area where [the body] had been found”. The Lancashire native went missing 29 days ago, after attending a music festival on this island. Jay went off with some boys he met that evening and was last seen near the home they rented, far from where he was staying. He was last heard from when he called his friend Lucy, saying his phone was low on battery and he was lost and thirsty. A search and rescue operation was launched after Jay was reported missing but authorities found no sign of him. The mountainous terrain complicated the search. They scaled down their operation two weeks on.
