Fly the United States Flag at Half-Staff Immediately in Honor of Former Vice President Walter Frederick Mondale

***** UPDATE *****
It is reported that former Vice President Walter Mondale’s funeral services are being scheduled for September. While there has not been a formal communication from the White House to raise flags, United States flags at the White House and U.S. Capitol have been returned to full-staff. We would recommend following their lead and return United States flags to full-staff.
***** UPDATE *****

Per the United States Flag Code below, United States Flags should be lowered to half-staff immediately honoring former Vice President Walter Mondale(1977-1981), who passed away April 18, 2021 at the age of 93.
