    When put at half-staff, the flag should be raised briskly to full-staff, then slowly lowered to the middle.  When taken down, it should be raised to full-staff and then removed. 

    The flag should only be placed at half-staff under orders from the President, the Governor of a state, on Memorial Day, and on Peace Officer's Memorial Day.

      Awesome JG11Bravo, and I can understand exactly why you would know just how to raise the flag property at half staff!  Thank you so much for answering.

    In Great Britain, according to the ' Flags and Heraldry Committee '( an all party group of the U.K. Parliament ), the Union Flag (called the Union Jack when at sea ),is actually flown two-thirds of the way up the flag staff. Firstly, it must be the right way up  ( the larger white stripe is always above the thin red stripe ).Secondly, it is raised all the way to the top, where it remains for one second, then lowered to the half-mast position. When being lowered from half-mast position, it is raised to the top of the staff, where it remains for one second, before being fully lowered.And finally, as an addendum, on Remembrance Sunday, the Union Flag always flies at full-mast.
