                Proclamation 10440 of September 8, 2022

                
Death of Queen Elizabeth II

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch. 
                She defined an era.

                In a world of constant change, she was a steadying 
                presence and a source of comfort and pride for 
                generations of Britons, including many who have never 
                known their country without her. Queen Elizabeth II led 
                always with grace, an unwavering commitment to duty, 
                and the incomparable power of her example. She was a 
                stateswoman of unmatched dignity and constancy who 
                deepened the bedrock Alliance between the United 
                Kingdom and the United States. She helped make our 
                relationship special. The seven decades of her history-
                making reign bore witness to an age of unprecedented 
                human advancement and the forward march of human 
                dignity. Her legacy will loom large in the pages of 
                British history, and in the story of our world.

                As a mark of respect for the memory of Queen Elizabeth 
                II, by the authority vested in me as President of the 
                United States by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States of America, I hereby order that the flag 
                of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at 
                the White House and upon all public buildings and 
                grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and 
                on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the 
                District of Columbia and throughout the United States 
                and its Territories and possessions until sunset, on 
                the day of interment. I also direct that the flag shall 
                be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at 
                all United States embassies, legations, consular 
                offices, and other facilities abroad, including all 
                military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
                seventh.
