I would retire the state flag first. Based on the raising/lowering rule,
that is that the national flag is first up and last down. I'm thinking the
retirement is analogous to coming down the pole, last in sight.
Just my thoughts and gut feeling. No official or unofficial writings to
back it up in any way.
