Governor’s flag order for the Commonwealth of Virginia

Pursuant to President Barack Obama’s Presidential Proclamation to lower the United States flag in honor and remembrance of Nelson Mandela, I do hereby order that the flags of the United States of America and the Commonwealth of Virginia are to be flown at half-staff on all local, state, and federal buildings and grounds in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
I hereby order that the flags shall be lowered immediately and remain at half-staff until sunset on Monday, December 9, 2013 provided that the flags are properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. Where no appropriate night illumination exists, the flags shall remain at half-staff only from sunrise to sunset each day through Monday, December 9, 2013.
Ordered on this the 6th day of December 2013.

Sincerely,
Robert F. McDonnell
