Flag Half Staff Alert- Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day


National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, also referred to as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day or Pearl Harbor Day, is observed annually in the United States on December 7, to remember and honor the 2,403 Americans who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, which led to the United States declaring war on Japan the next day and thus entering World War II.

On Pearl Harbor Day, Wednesday, December 7, 2022 the American Flag and all flags flying with it should be flown at half-staff from sun-up until sunset to honor those who died as a result of the attack on U.S. military forces in Hawaii.

If your flag cannot be lowered at sun-up it is permissible to lower it the night before. Also if you have an outdoor flag that cannot be lowered, respect for the day can be shown by tying a black cord or ribbon to the top of the flag staff.
