United States and Commonwealth Flags at Half-Staff

HARRISBURG, PA — In remembrance of the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks and in honor of Patriot Day, Governor Tom Wolf has ordered all United States and Commonwealth flags on the Capitol Complex and Commonwealth facilities throughout the state lowered to half-staff today, September 11, 2020.
