Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday ordered Florida and United States flags to be flown at half-staff Saturday to honor former First Lady Barbara Bush.

The order, which was in conjunction with a proclamation by President Donald Trump, will lead to flags being flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings in Florida.

Bush, 92, the mother of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, died Tuesday and will be buried Saturday in Texas.
