On Monday morning Governor Pat McCrory ordered all United States and North Carolina flags to be immediately lowered to half-staff on all state facilities in honor of the victims of the March 22 terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium. Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on Saturday, March 26.
“The terror events in Brussels, Belgium brings with it a deep sadness for the victims and their families, but also a steadfast resolve to bring these terrorists to justice and prevent these acts from happening again,” said Governor Pat McCrory. “It has never been a more important time for North Carolinians to stand in solidarity with our Belgian brothers and sisters against the perpetrators of these acts of evil.”
