Concord, NH – Governor Chris Sununu today announced that in accordance with the President's proclamation honoring former First Lady Barbara Bush, all U.S. and state flags in the State of New Hampshire should be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment.

"New Hampshire is mourning the loss of American icon and honorary Granite Stater Barbara Bush," said Governor Chris Sununu.
