(Lincoln, Neb.) Late Thursday night, the White House notified States of a Presidential Proclamation to fly flags at half-staff through sunset on Monday, Dec. 9, as, according to the Presidential Proclamation, "a mark of respect for the memory of Nelson Mandela."

During this time, Gov. Heineman reminds Nebraskans to the flag at half-staff this Sat., Dec. 7 for the annual National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day in honor of those American patriots who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor.

Gov. Dave Heineman is reminding Nebraskans that flags at all state buildings and facilities are to be lowered to half-staff now through sunset on Monday, Dec. 9. Nebraska residents are also encouraged to fly flags at half-staff.
