Australian flag

In recognition of Australia Day and in accordance with flag protocol, the Australian National Flag should be flown or displayed where possible on Wednesday 26 January 2022, from all buildings and establishments occupied by Western Australian government departments and associated agencies. Other organisations are also welcome to participate.

Ministerial offices are requested to advise all agencies within their Minister’s portfolio.

The financial and staffing implications arising from public holiday flag marshal duties are the responsibility of each organisation.
