Flag at Half Mast


To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Gov. Walz has declared Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021 as Patriot Day and ordered that all United States and Minnesota flags be flown at half-staff at all state and federal buildings in the State of Minnesota.

“September 11, 2021 marks the twentieth anniversary of the terrorist attacks against the United States of America in which thousands of innocent people were killed or injured. Police officers, fire and rescue personnel, other first responders, and American citizens demonstrated extraordinary bravery in the wake of these attacks,” reads the proclamation issued by Gov. Walz. “The people of Minnesota have set aside this day to honor, remember, and mourn the victims of this tragedy.”
