City Flag Status

In recognition of Memorial Day, in honor of those who died serving the nation during times of war, by order of the Mayor of the City of New York, Bill de Blasio, all flags shall be flown at half-staff on Monday, May 25, 2015, from sunrise until noon. Flags will then fly at full staff for the rest of the day, until sunset. This includes all flags—the American flag, the New York State and City flags, and the POW-MIA flag—on all City buildings as well as stationary flagstaffs throughout the five boroughs of the City of New York.
