Three days of mourning

We have had three days of mourning for the earthquake victims and families in Sichuan province - Monday to Wednesday with 3 minutes silence at the time that the quake hit.

Flags are at half mast, movie houses have been closed, and those business that usually play music have been silenced. Even places like Starbucks.

At the school there was one lone flag - the half mast Chinese flag.

You are probably technically right - but in Australia we always say "halfmast."
