SALT LAKE CITY (Sept. 10, 2019) – Gov. Gary R. Herbert has ordered the lowering of the flag of the United States of America and the flag of the State of Utah on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019 in observation of Patriot Day.
The governor issued the following statement:
“Eighteen years ago, we faced the deadliest attack to ever take place on United States soil. In spite of the great tragedy that took place that day, we came together as a country — in love, in hope, and in resilience. May we always remember those who were lost in these senseless acts of terrorism, and the first responders and everyday heroes who risked and gave their lives on behalf of others. May we never forget.”
Flags will be flown at half-staff at all state facilities and public grounds from sunrise until sunset on Wednesday, Sept. 11. Individuals and businesses are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time.
