Flags Available for Community Groups

Community groups, sporting clubs and schools are encouraged to replace their tired or torn flags, Opposition Leader and Member for Maribyrnong Bill Shorten said today.

“If any local community associations, sporting clubs, schools or churches are in need of a new flag, I encourage them to contact my office,” he said.

Mr Shorten said that his office was able to provide eligible local community groups with Australian, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander flags under the Constituents Request Program.

"As we approach a number of key calendar events, it's an opportunity for us to reflect upon our shared values and vision for our community."
