Spokane Mayor Condon has directed that all flags at City facilities be lowered to half- staff to coincide with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities be lowered on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019, for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

In 1994, National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day was created by Congress to honor the more than 2,400 Americans who lost their lives and the more than 1,000 service members who were wounded in the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

“We encourage anyone with a flag outside their home or business to join us in honoring the Americans killed or injured during the Pearl Harbor attack,” said Mayor David Condon.

Flags can remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Saturday, Dec. 7, or first thing Monday morning, Dec. 9.
