CUPERTINO -- The city's flag will fly at half staff Friday at the Cupertino Civic Center to mark 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," Mayor Mark Santoro said in a news release posted on the city website. "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 city flag, which is blue and features a conquistador's helmet, is the only flag flown outdoors in front of the Cupertino Community Center. It will fly at half-staff from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Friday.
Jobs died at his Palo Alto home last Oct. 5 due to complications of pancreatic cancer. He was 56. He made his last public appearance at a June 6 Cupertino City Council meeting at the civic center.
