    Flags Fly Half-Staff in West Hollywood in Memory of Queen Elizabeth II

    As a mark of respect for the memory of Queen Elizabeth II, flags in West Hollywood will be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment. President Biden has ordered that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff to remember the life of The Queen who died Thursday, September 8, 2022. She served for over 70 years and passed away at Balmoral Castle, her estate in Scotland. She was 96.

    “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch,” the President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden said in a statement. “She defined an era.”

    In a world of constant change, the queen was “a steadying presence and a source of comfort and pride for generations of Britons, including many who have never known their country without her,” the statement said. “An enduring admiration for Queen Elizabeth II united people across the Commonwealth. The seven decades of her history-making reign bore witness to an age of unprecedented human advancement and the forward march of human dignity.”

    “The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” reads a statement from His Majesty King Charles III, at the time of The Queen’s death on Thursday, September 8, 2022. “I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world. During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held.”

    Flags will also be at half-staff for September 11th – Patriot Day (half-staff all day).

    The difference between half-mast and half-staff is a half-mast refers to lowered flags on a ship, while half-staff is a pole in the ground.
