Fly Your Flags at Half Mast


Flags will be flown at half-staff for the next several days at the White House and all public buildings in honor of the victims in the Colorado mass shooting.

The White House announced the decision in a presidential proclamation Friday afternoon, “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated … in Aurora, Colorado.”

President Obama ordered that the flags be flown at half-staff at all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and on all naval vessels until July 25.

The president directed embassies and other offices and military facilities abroad to take the same action.

How To Fly Your Flag

When the President orders flags to be flown at half mast your flag must remain in that position until the President designates a day to return your flag to full mast.

Flags that are not being flown from an in-ground pole but from the side of a house must attach a black mourning strip to their pole or flag ring until the designated time as well.

If you have questions please call 614-263-1776 and we will give you further information.

The Flag Lady Rides in the Veterans Day Parade!

The Flag Lady with Ohio State Students on the Grace Bretheren Float.Operation Buckeye Participants from Ohio State as well as Dick Stone! Go Buckeyes!
At The Veterans Parade on Friday, The Flag Lady’s Flag Store and Operation Buckeye were “front to back” in The Parade.
Richard Strait was head of the Operation Buckeye crew (which consisted of 20 OSU student athletes who distributed the brochures) — and The Flag Lady was on the Grace Brethren float with veterans. Operation Buckeye (who sends boxes to our Buckeye Military overseas) and The Flag Lady’s Flag Store walk the walk for the military serving now and the veterans who served and gave their lives for “Our Country” and “Old Glory.”

However, Richard Strait (and co-founder of Operation Buckeye, Jim Caronis), Dale Daley and Mary Leavitt bonded years ago at “Good ‘Ole North High School” — they are “Proud Polar Bears!”

Anyone who wants to contribute to them, they would appreciate it. $30 ($10.70 postage) sends one box overseas to deployed Buckeye Military. Send your Operation Buckeye check to any Huntington National Bank.

The Flag Lady’s Flag Store has a heart for the military and veterans and she would appreciate your help. The check should be written to The Flag Lady Foundation and mailed to to The Flag Lady’s Flag Store at 4567 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43214.

“God Bless America!” and “Go Bucks!”
