Governor Murphy Directs U.S. and New Jersey Flags to Fly at Half-Staff in Honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


TRENTON - Governor Phil Murphy today ordered that the U.S. and New Jersey flags be flown at half-staff at all state buildings and facilities starting immediately, in recognition of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The flags will remain at half-staff until the date of her interment.

“Justice Ginsburg dedicated her life and career not only to the premise of equal justice and equity under the law, but also to the most basic premise that, regardless of gender, or race, or religion, or orientation, or identity, or nationality and ethnic heritage, we all must commit to fight for the things that we care about,” said Governor Murphy. “We have been made a better nation, and a better people, through her reasoned approach and sharp-minded opinions."
