RE:                  Flags at Half-Staff in Honor of Former Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe 
On Friday, July 8, 2022, to the shock and horror of the world, former Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe was assassinated. Abe was the longest-serving Prime Minister in Japan’s history. He was a strong leader and faithful ally to our nation. Abe was a great man who truly understood freedom and democracy. He will be remembered for his remarkable service and commitment to the people of Japan.
Pursuant to the President’s order and as a mark of respect, I hereby direct the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida until sunset on Sunday, July 10, 2022. 
Please see the proclamation by President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. here.
