Flag flying

As a mark of respect flags will fly at half-mast on all council buildings and flagpoles until the morning following the funeral of Her Majesty the Queen, which is now set to take place on Monday 19 September.

There was one exception to this. On Saturday 10 September 2022 at 11am all flags returned to full-mast.

This exception was to ensure that all flags were flown at full-mast when the Proclamation was read to the people of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. In the case of Dumfries and Galloway this Proclamation took place at 12.45pm on Sunday 11 September.

The flags remained at full-mast until after 1pm on Sunday 11 September at which point they were returned to half-mast where they will remain until the day after the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - 8am on Tuesday 20 September.
