Gov’t lowers flags after Central London terror attack

Flags were lowered outside government buildings following Saturday terror attack.

Flags were lowered outside government buildings following Saturday terror attack.

Flags at government buildings in the Cayman Islands were lowered to half-mast on Monday as a mark of respect for the victims of the terror attack in London, U.K. on Saturday night.

According to GIS in a press release, flags should be flown at half-mast on all government and public buildings throughout the Cayman Islands until further notice.

The correct procedure for half-masting a flag is to raise the flag to the normal flying position and then to lower to one-third below that. If more than one flag is flown, any others should preferably also be half-masted.
