Why is the Flag Flying at Half-Staff Today?

For Immediate Release: 1/5/2022 

GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL

 

 

GOVERNOR HOCHUL DIRECTS FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF TO HONOR THE BRAVE AMERICANS WHO DEFENDED OUR NATION'S CAPITOL IN THE FACE OF INSURRECTION 

  

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced flags on state buildings will be flown at half-staff on January 6 in honor of the brave Americans who defended the United States Capitol Building during the attempted insurrection of 2021. Flags will be lowered beginning at 2:11 p.m. — the time when the Capitol was first breached — and hoisted to full-staff at 8:06 p.m. — the time the United States Senate reconvened. 

 

"The cowardly attacks during the January 6th insurrection last year were more than an assault on the U.S. Capitol building, it was an assault on our democratic values," Governor Hochul said. "We will never be intimidated - democracy will always win. I thank the brave heroes who put their lives on the line to protect public safety on January 6th, and I encourage all of us to reflect on the values with which we built this country: democracy, resiliency, and unity over division."
