All U.S. flags on public buildings statewide are to be flown at half-staff by order of Gov. Jared Polis.
The Monday order, and set through sunset Wednesday, is to honor U.S. Capitol Police officers, according to the governor’s office.
Officer Brian D. Sicknick died Thursday, a day after the U.S. Capitol was stormed by an armed and violent mob. Officer Howard Liebengood died Saturday when he took his own life.
Dozens of officers were injured in the violence and four people died, three in medical emergencies and one — Ashli Babbitt — was shot by an officer.
Flags have also been ordered to half-staff at all federal facilities.
