Governor Roy Cooper today ordered all United States and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Monday, September 11, in tribute to Patriot Day, also known as the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
"We all remember where we were and what we were doing when this tragedy occurred,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “Our hearts are with those who lost loved ones on 9/11, and we are grateful for the courageous first responders who made sacrifices to save others.”
Gone but never forgotten, this day honors the victims of the terrorist attack, their families and the heroic sacrifices of first responders. Please join us as we remember the innocent lives lost during one of the most deadly attacks on U.S. soil.
Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are also encouraged to fly flags at half-staff for the duration of time indicated.
North Carolina flag announcements are issued in accordance to regulations outlined in the U.S. Flag Code.
