FARGO — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has directed all government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.
In North Dakota, Gov. Doug Burgum is directing flags be at half-staff until noon, when they should be raised to full staff, in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Donald Trump. The president’s proclamation designates the hour starting at 11 a.m. as a time when people should “unite in prayer” and observe the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m.
Burgum will commemorate the day by attending and delivering welcoming remarks at the Memorial Day ceremony at noon Monday at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery near Mandan.
