Cupertino Flag at Half Staff in Memory of Steve Jobs
Cupertino Mayor Mark Santoro, has ordered that the flag of the city of Cupertino be flown at half staff at the Cupertino Civic Center in recognition of the first anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death. “Steve grew up and went to school in Cupertino. As his company and vision grew, so our entire community came to realize we can change the world for the better,” said Mayor Santoro. “Placing our city flag at half staff is a small reminder of the profound and very local impact this man had on our community.”
The Cupertino city flag is only flown outdoors in front of the Cupertino Community Hall, where Steve Jobs made his last public presentation to the Cupertino City Council on June 6, 2011. The city flag will be half staff from 7 AM until 2:30 PM on Friday, October 5, 2012.
