Gov’t lowers flags after Central London terror attack
Created : 5 June 2017
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.
