Flags Lowered for London

Flags flying at half-mast at the Government Administration Building today (Thursday, 23 March 2017).

Flags at the Government Administration Building in Elgin Avenue were lowered to half-mast today (Thursday, 23 March 2017) as a mark of respect for the victims of a terror attack in London, U.K. yesterday.

Two civilians, a policeman and the attacker died, while at least 40 people were injured in the atrocity in central London.

Flags will 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 also preferably be half-masted.
