Rules of Use

Half Staff

The flag must be lowered to half staff when a state of national mourning has been declared, and on all national days of mourning as chosen beforehand. If the flag is not flying on a pole, or if it is impossible to lower the flag to half staff, a black ribbon is to be flown above the flag or on both sides if the flag is hung vertically.

The flag of Caudonia has only been lowered to half staff on one occasion: the state of national mourning following the death of Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicholas Randouler.

Proposed change

On 12 January 2020, William I and Ned Fram proposed to form a committee to review and propose designs for a new national flag. Many senior government officials were members of this committee. A referendum on selecting the best of the four flags chosen by the committee was planned to be held alongside the March 2020 election, however, the committee never came to a decision about alternative flags. It was disbanded after a few months.
