Pauline Njoroge is a Kenyan political blogger. She has a few minutes ago taken to her Facebook Page to indicate that the Presidential Standard is a key feature in a State Funeral and the processes around it include lying in a state where it is used to cover the catafalque.
Pauline went ahead and revealed that the standard flag acts as a symbol of a head of state and was a tradition borrowed from the British. When the Queen is in her residence at Buckingham Palace for example you will know because the royal standard flies over the Palace. The same happens when our President is at the State House or in any state function.
In my view, this is a good way of remembering our leaders. Remember they have done an amazing job for us.
