Spokane Mayor David Condon has directed that flags currently lowered in remembrance of the San Bernardino attack will stay lowered at City facilities Monday, Dec. 7th for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day was created by Congress in 1994 in honor of those Americans killed or injured as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Monday.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.

The public is also invited to a ceremony in Spokane to salute the fallen in front of the Pearl Harbor memorial (outside Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, Howard Street) Monday, Dec. 7 at 1:30 p.m. Two remaining living members of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association in eastern Washington and northern Idaho will take part in the commemoration.
