Australian National Flag Day celebrations 2010 Print E-mail
Written by John Vaughan   
Wednesday, 25 August 2010

 

Australian National Flag Day will be celebrated across our nation on Friday, 3 September, 2010.

This day commemorates the first occasion when our national flag was flown, on 3 September 1901 when Prime Minister Edward Barton announced the winning design from a public competition to select our new nation’s flag. 32,823 entries were received with five of the designs being identical.

The winners, three teenagers, a woman and a man shared the honour of creating Australia’s chief national symbol, the Australian National Flag.

I encourage you to conduct or to participate in an Australian flag raising ceremony to celebrate this day, the 109th anniversary of our national flag of “Stars and Crosses”.

 

 

The main Sydney ceremony, with Woolooware High School big band will be held at lunchtime on:

AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL FLAG DAY,

Friday lunchtime, 3 September

Martin Place Amphitheatre,

11.45am to 1.30pm

WAVE YOUR FLAG!

 

Our flag represents our nation when it is flown both in Australia and across the world. This day is a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect on the how our flag unites us as a nation and our pride in our achievements.

 

Recognition will be given to the symbols of Australia's history and heritage evidenced by The Flag. The Southern Cross representing our geographical position in the southern hemisphere; the Commonwealth Star, emblem of our federation of States and federal territories and the three crosses, St George, St Andrew and St Patrick representing the principles on which our nation is based including, parliamentary democracy, rule of law and freedom of speech.

 Information about Flag Day around Australia can be found on the web site for the Australian National Flag Association at www.australianflag.org.au HOME OF THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL FLAG.
