FREE Australian Flags Publication available now

For all of us who love and treasure our national flag of “Stars and Crosses” there is  good news as an impressive flag protocol book is now available published by the Commonwealth Government and it is free of charge.

Write, ring or email your local Federal Member of Parliament or Senator and request a copy of AUSTRALIAN FLAGS to be posted out or collected.

The lavish publication covers the history and flag flying etiquette of our chief national symbol, historical flags of Australia as well as State and Territory designs, the ensigns of our armed services and other interesting vexillological information.

The AUSTRALIAN FLAGS book is recommended and is yours for the asking as is another government publication, AUSTRALIAN SYMBOLS.

Cheers for our beautiful flag of Stars and Crosses!
