Gov. Dave Heineman is reminding residents to fly flags at state government buildings and other sites to honor the late Hawaii Sen. Daniel Inouye.

Heineman ordered the flags lowered in accordance with a presidential proclamation.

Inouye, the longest serving current member of the U.S. Senate, died of respiratory complications on Monday. He was 88.

Officials say the flags are to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Sunday, the day of Inouye's burial.
