Flags Lowered to Half-Staff in Honor of former state Senator John Mowat Saturday March 5, 2022

LANSING, Mich. – Governor Gretchen Whitmer has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags within the State Capitol Complex to be lowered to half-staff on Saturday, March 5, 2022, in honor of former state Senator John Mowat, who passed away at the age of 95 years old. The flag-lowering will coincide with the date of his funeral. 

Senator Mowat served in the Michigan House of Representatives from 1971 to 1978, representing the Adrian area. He served in the Michigan Senate from 1978 to 1982.

John Mowat passed away on Monday, February 14 at 95 years old.

The State of Michigan recognizes the duty, honor, and service of former state Senator John Mowat by lowering flags to half-staff. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments, and other organizations also are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff. 

To lower flags to half-staff, flags should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. The process is reversed before the flag is lowered for the day.  

Flags should be returned to full staff on Sunday, March 6, 2022.
