UPDATE (1:50 p.m. MT): After complaints from the American Legion and movements by many states around the country, including Colorado, to fly their flags at half-staff through the weekend, the White House flag was back at half-staff by Monday afternoon.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The flags at the White House, which were lowered over the weekend to mark the death of Sen. John McCain, are back at full-staff.
The flags at the U.S. Capitol, meanwhile, remained at half-staff on Monday to honor the Arizona Republican, who died Saturday of brain cancer.
President Donald Trump offered his condolences on Twitter to McCain's family but hasn't issued a presidential proclamation with an order lowering the flags. The two had a long-running feud.
U.S. Flag Code states that flags be lowered "on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress."
After Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for five days.
The White House didn't immediately respond to questions Monday.
