Flag Notices

Per the United States Flag Code, all persons or entities covered by the Flag Display Act are to fly the American & Illinois flags at half-staff on designated days such as specific holidays (Peace Officers Memorial Day, Memorial Day, Patriot Day, and Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day) and to honor the passing of fallen soldiers, police officers, firefighters, and certain elected officials. Flags should be displayed at full-staff on all other days.

To further honor fallen Illinois soldiers, Governor Rauner has ordered that flags are to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on the day of the funeral of every fallen Illinois soldier and two days preceding that day.

The Village will list half-staff notices to this page.
