Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has directed that all flags at City facilities remain at half-staff to coincide with President Joseph R. Biden’s directive that state and US flags at all state agency facilities be lowered in remembrance of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was the UK’s longest-serving monarch and a strong ally for the United States,” said Mayor Woodward. “We encourage anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in honoring Queen Elizabeth II.”

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully on Thursday, Sept. 8 at her Scottish estate. Flags will remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment.
