“In the memory of the personality of Queen Anne of Romania, the Romanian Government has declared August 13, 2016 a day of national mourning. On that day, the central and local public administrations will fly the Romanian national flag at half-mast. The flag will be flown at half-mast at the headquarters of political parties, trade unions, employers’ associations, culture organisations and Romania’s diplomatic missions, as well as at the country’s border crossing points, airports, ports, train stations and bus terminals and on the ships and boats flying the Romanian flag,” said Iolu.
