Happy Birthday Australian National Flag

Postby ColinS » Sun Sep 03, 2017 4:26 pm

Today 3rd September 2017 the Australian National Flag is 116 years old
The Australian National Flag was officially flown "aloft and free" for the first time at the Royal Exhibition Buildings, Melbourne on 3 September 1901 in the presence of Australia’s first Prime Minister Edmund Barton. The design was the product of a public design competition held to find a national flag for the new Australian nation. At that time, following Federation, the sentiment freely expressed across the new states was of "One people, one nation, one flag". That same sentiment is equally relevant today.
