What is the right way to raise a flag half staff?

Raise the flag briskly to the top of the pole. Pause for just a second, then slowly lower the flag until it is in the center of the pole (literally half staff). Lowering the flag from half staff is the exact opposite. Raise the flag to full staff, pause for a second, then slowly lower the flag all the way.


Why are flags flying at half mast on May 4 2009?

It is traditional to fly the flag at half staff (half mast should really only relate to flags flown on board ship) on days of national mourning in the UK, such as the death of the Sovereign, or of a Prime Minister. November 9, 2008 was Remembrance Sunday when the nation remembers the dead in all conflicts since the First World War and is hence a day of national mourning. Although the Armistice (treaty to end the Great War in 1918) was signed at 11am on 11 November, it has become customary to mark the date on the nearest Sunday to that, rather than keeping to 11 November which began to cause traffic disruption in large cities. The reason for flying a flag at half staff is to leave room for the invisible flag of death being "flown" at the top of the mast, signifying the presence of death.
