Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all city facilities to remain lowered to coincide with Gov. Jay Inslee’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities remain lowered, in remembrance of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Friday our nation lost a trailblazer,” said Mayor Woodward. “Justice Ginsburg leaves a legacy of advancing civil rights, women’s equality and gender equality. We encourage anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in honoring Justice Ginsburg.”

On Friday, Sept. 18, Justice Ginsburg died of complications related to pancreatic cancer. Flags will remain at half-staff until her interment.
