The City hosted a booth at Twin Cities Pride in 2019. 

Flags on display at Civic Plaza

Maybe you’ve noticed the three flags in front of Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road. The City of Bloomington, State of Minnesota and American flags fly day and night, but there’s more to flying flags than meets the eye. Flag code contains etiquette for how flags are raised, lowered, placed and even retired. 

Throughout the year, five days (Peace Officers Memorial Day, Memorial Day, Patriot Day, National Firefighters Memorial Day and Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day) are designated for flags to be flown at half-mast, but the president or governor can add others. In May, Governor Walz signed a declaration to remember and mourn lives lost to COVID-19, and flags will be flown at half-mast on the 19th day of every month this year.
