Half-staff order concludes April 23

To honor the late Vice President Walter Mondale, USPS facilities should fly flags at half-staff until April 23 at sunset.

Postal Service facilities should return U.S. flags to full-staff, effective April 23 at sunset.

On April 20, President Joe Biden ordered flags to fly at half-staff to honor Walter Mondale, the former vice president who died the previous day. According to the order, flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment, which is April 23.

The USPS Administrative Support Manual has guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance.
