To all the owners of a flagpole, here is your opportunity to show your national pride and fly the Aussie Flag Tuesday, 3rd September to mark the day of our flag’s birthday.
The announcement that the Governor General had officially proclaimed 3 September as Australian National Flag Day was made at a special ceremony held at Martin Place, Sydney. (read more)
The Australian National Flag was officially flown “aloft and free” for the first time at the Royal Exhibition Buildings, Melbourne on 3 September 1901 in the presence of Australia’s first Prime Minister Edmund Barton.
The design was the product of a public design competition held to find a national flag for the new Australian nation. At that time, following Federation, the sentiment freely expressed across the new states was of “One people, one nation, one flag”.
That same sentiment is equally relevant today. (read more about Flag Day)
The publication Australian flags is available free of charge from the electorate offices of Federal Members of Parliament and Senators. (visit itsanhonour.gov.au)
Frankston City Council at Carrum Downs receives 125mm x 10.0mtr Stepped Flagpoles.
Intrack Systems Australia won the tender to supply and install flagpoles on the EastLink Freeway on behalf of Frankston City Council.
The initial tender was for 8.0mtr flagpoles, however Intrack recommended a larger flagpole be used to have the capability to take a larger flag and therefore keep all flag sizes the same throughout Council.
Greg from Intrack noticed the existing flagpoles at Gumbuya Park were not rotating and therefore their flags always kept on ripping. Intrack approached Gumbuya Park and advised them of the situation. As a result Gumbuya Park ordered Intrack’s 60mm x 6.0mtr Rota Arm Flagpoles and, you can see for yourself, the results are eye catching!
“Thanks Janelle. I am so glad you called us and yes they do look great. Very Pleased. Thanking you guys” Deb Kluske. Gumbuya Park.
