OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry has ordered all American and Oklahoma flags on state property to be flown at half-staff Monday, in commemoration of the 15-year anniversary of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing on April 19, 1995.

The flags will fly at half-staff all day on Monday.

Henry has designated the American flag as the commemorative flag to be flown in memory of those killed and injured in the bombing.

The American flag will fly on each of the 14 flag poles located at the south plaza entrance to the state capitol building from 8 a.m. Monday, April 19 until 5:00 p.m. Sunday, April 25.

"We shall never forget the 168 Americans who lost their lives, including 19 children, on the fateful day. We must never forget the more than 850 others who were injured and bravely live on, emblematic of our great state and nation," Henry said. "The people of Oklahoma will never forget the courage and compassion of those from around the world who were involved in the rescue and recovery and who continued to share an outpouring of goodwill."

In addition, Henry is encouraging all Oklahomans to fly the American flag during the week of April 19th.
