Protocol Office Article 2012.04.01 Full-mast and half-mast flag dis­plays

If mourning is ordered only for the federal area, mourning applies only to the federal (institutions) flag and the European flag. Flags of other supranational and international organizations, foreign states and other territories are exempted (Section V paragraph 4 of the Federal Government Decree concerning flag displays at federal buildings). 

If mourning is ordered during an international event for which several foreign flags are to be hoisted and no black crepe streamers are available, then only the federal (institutions) flag and the European flag are flown at half-mast, while the remaining flags remain at full-mast. But guests should still be informed in a suitable way why the federal (institutions) flag and European flag are flying at half-mast.
