The flag at the Estherville Post Office flew at half staff along with other American flags around the region over the weekend.

Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all state flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff effective immediately until sunset on Monday, Feb. 19, 2018, to honor the murdered and injured in Wednesday's tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The governor's order is issued in conjunction with President Donald Trump's order to lower all United States flags to half-staff for the same length of time.

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.
