AUSTRALIA DAY – SATURDAY 26 JANUARY 2019
Day of National Celebration.
Australia Day is a time to celebrate the nation and people we have become. We celebrate the history that has made us who we are; the country that we love and the values and institutions that underpin it.
To contribute to the national celebration and as a demonstration of national pride, and in accordance with flag protocol, all Australian and Queensland Government departments and associated portfolio agencies should fly or display the Australian National Flag all day on Saturday, 26 January 2019. Other organisations are welcome to participate.
The financial and staffing implications arising from weekend flag marshal duties are the responsibility of each organisation.
