Australian National Flag Day 2017

September 3, 2017 in Australia

Australian National Flag Day is observed on September 03, 2017. It commemorates the day in 1901 on which the Australian National Flag was first flown. On that day Prime Minister Edmund Barton announced the winners of a competition to design a flag for Australia. A large flag, 5.5 metres by 11 metres, was flown over the dome of the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. On 28 August 1996, the Governor-General of Australia, Sir William Deane, issued a proclamation from Government House, Canberra that officially established 3 September as Australian National Flag Day. Australian National Flag Day is not a public holiday. Ceremonies are held annually in schools, major centres, and the Governor-General, Governors and some politicians attend or release statements to the media. (With material from: Wikipedia)
