Flag Flying Protocol: Death of the Monarch
The following protocol is followed in relation to flag flying upon the death of The Monarch.
Upon the formal announcement of death, flags (see list below) will be lowered to half-mast.
Flags will return to full mast when the Proclamation of the new King takes place at St James Palace (Saturday 10 September 2022). Flags will remain at full mast until 1pm on the day when Proclamations take place in the Nations (Sunday 11 September 2022).
After 1pm all flags will be returned to half-mast except for the flag at the Town Hall in Bangor, which must remain at full-mast until the conclusion of the local Proclamation. It will then be returned to half-mast.
Flags will remain at half-mast until the end of the mourning period. At this point normal practice resumes and only flags that fly 365 days are returned to full-mast.
