Not all days when it is mandatory to raise a flag are festive. Although we all would like to avoid such days, sometimes mourning days are announced, then the state flag is raised together with mourning band.
According to state flag’s protocol, “a black ribbon with a 10 cm width, with its ends reaching the bottom of the flag, is fastened to the flag’s handle”.
In our company you can purchase a mourning band for flags handle, fitted to 1 x 1.7 meter flag dimensions. Flags of such dimensions are usually raised on the flag handle.
If during the mourning day flag is raised on a flag handle, the flag protocol indicates first to rise flag to the highest point of the handle, and then lower it 1/3 of the handle’s length.
