In honor of the late Sen. John McCain, who passed away on August 25, the Hillcrest Pride flag will be flying at half-staff through Saturday. 

On Monday the president called for the U.S. flag to be lowered to half-staff all week. 

Hillcrest's Pride flag follows the same protocol as the American flag when it comes to official positioning. 

"It is currently my plan to put the flag at half-staff today and have it fly at half-staff until Saturday," said Benjamin Nicholls, executive director of the Hillcrest Business Association. "The presidential (and Mayoral) proclamation was too late in the day yesterday [Monday] for us to put it up."

Nicholls is in charge of raising the Pride Flag and following national and local policies.
