Flags at Half-Staff for Victims of the Attack in Kabul, Afghanistan

Montgomery County Circuit Court

President Joe Biden ordered the United States flag to be flown at half-staff following the Aug. 26 terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan. The Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff as no flag may fly higher than the United States flag.

This is to pay respect to the victims of Thursday’s terrorist attack outside Kabul airport that left dozens of people dead. at least 13 of the victims were U.S. service members, according to The Washington Post.

The flags will be raised to full staff at sunset on Monday, Aug. 30.
