Why are the flags at half-staff?
Information on why Illinois state flags and United States flags are flying at half-staff will now be communicated through ICC’s Veterans’ Affairs webpage, at http://www.icc.edu/veterans/.
Click on the link for the “Illinois Flag Display Act” under the heading “Honoring Illinois’ Fallen,” and you will be redirected to the State of Illinois’ website. There you will find a listing of all the half-staff proclamations, in accordance with Illinois Flag Display Act.
ICC honors this act by flying the College’s flags at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on the day of the funeral of every fallen Illinois soldier and the two days preceding that day.
