The Congress, by Public Law 103 308 (as amended) has designated December 7 of each year as “National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.”

The flag is flown in the half-staff position all day.

Poles that are too short to fly the flag at half-staff may be adorned with black ribbon, to signify honor, remembrance, and mourning.

  1. I have been tring to find out were the origanal flag that was fliing on the USS Arizona is at now but can find no answers. Would realy like to know.

    1. Kent, I have never heard where that flag might be, or if it was recovered. However, the ship was so badly damaged, and burned for over two days, so I can’t help thniking that the flag did not survive. Here is a link to the USS Arizona Memorial website, and I am sure someone there knows the answer to your question if you send them an email through the contact page.

      The Daily Flag had this article about a veteran from the USS Arizona, if you want to go read it.

      Best Wishes and good luck in your quest,
