Maryland Secretary of State Flag Status

Lowering and Raising of the United States Flag and Maryland State Flag to Half Staff
This is to advise you that Governor Larry Hogan has ordered the United States Flag and Maryland State Flag flown at half-staff on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 from sunrise to sunset. This is in memory of Navy Petty Officer First Class Xavier Alec Martin, of Halethorpe, Maryland, who died on June 18, 2017, while serving aboard the USS Fitzgerald.

Why is the MD flag equal to the US flag? No flag is be flown above or equal in height to the US flag. Where is the protocol?

Just looked it up, flags can be flown equal to the American flag if on separate poles. Find something else to complain about.
