    The flag should be flown under the orders of the President only. When the death of a figure in the US Government occurs, or another official, the President will order all flags to be flown at half-staff. You will find, however, there are mistakes made even by the government, such as when Attorney General Janet Reno ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of the DEA agents that had died. The fact is only the President may order flags to be at half-staff.

    Hope this help you.
