HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Governor Tom Wolf has ordered flags to half-staff to honor Israel’s former president and prime minister, Shimon Peres, who died this week.
In unity with the proclamation by President Obama, all United States and Commonwealth flags must be lowered at the Capitol Complex, Commonwealth facilities and all public buildings and grounds throughout the state until sunset on Friday.
All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate.
Peres, a Nobel Prize winner, died early Wednesday at the age of 93. He spent seven decades in politics and has been praised by world leaders for his pursuit of peace in the Middle East.
