Flags at state and local government buildings to be flown at half-staff on Dec. 7 for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The U.S. and Missouri flags on all state and local government buildings in Missouri will be flown at half-staff on Saturday, Dec. 7 to commemorate those who died or were wounded during the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Dec. 7, 1941. A 1996 state law designates the date as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and directs that on that day, flags be flown at half-staff by all state agencies and political subdivisions of the state.

“Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day reminds us of the sacrifices that have been made by our men and women in uniform, and of their tremendous courage through the generations,” Gov. Jay Nixon said. “When Missourians see the flags at half-staff on Saturday, I ask that they remember and honor those who have served or who are now serving our nation.”
