Flags Reversed To Fly At Full Mast

Following the completion of the period of national mourning of the late President, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills all flags are to revert to flying at full mast. A statement issued by the Presidency and signed by the Chief of Staff thanked all Ministries, Departments and Agencies as well as private organizations and the general public for their cooperation in flying flags at half mast during the period of national mourning. Meanwhile, the Funeral Planning Committee has also requested that all red and black draping of public buildings and at public places be maintained until the customary forty (40) day observations have been concluded. Many Ghanaians who have also clad their vehicles and homes in red and black in these difficult times are also respectfully encouraged to do same.
