Flags across the Town of Cobourg will fly at half-staff
Friday, June 23, 2023, in honour of the National Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Terrorism, flags will fly at half-staff.
The National Day of Remembrance for Victims of Terrorism was first observed on June 23, 2005, in memory of those who have lost their lives through acts of terror in Canada and around the world.
The day was chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the Air India Flight 182 tragedy, which occurred on June 23, 1985.
Flags across all Town of Cobourg properties will fly at half-staff for the day.
Municipal flag poles that are currently flying the Pride flag will be temporarily replaced with the Canada flag to mark the day. The Pride Flag will be returned to full staff on Monday, June 26th for the remainder of Pride month.
