Flag Policy posted for public comment

The University Secretariat has posted the Flag Policy for public comment from the university community.

The purpose of the Queen's Flag Policy is to ensure that all flags at Queen's are flown in an appropriate and consistent manner. The policy and its attached procedures aim to provide clarity on the routine flying of official flags on campus, and the processing of requests to raise a flag that is not an official flag. Direction is also given on the lowering of flags to mark a death (either of a member of the Queen's community, a prominent Kingstonian, or a public official as defined by the Rules for half-masting the National Flag of Canada), or to mark a commemorative date.

The policy document can found online at the University Secretariat and Legal Counsel website.

University community members have until Wednesday, March 27 at 4 pm to send their feedback to policies@queensu.ca.
