The Australian National Flag

Some guidelines for the Australian National Flag:

  • The flag should be raised quickly and carefully, and lowered slowly
  • Do not raise the flag earlier than sunrise, or lower the flag later than sunset
  • Only fly at night if the flag is lit-up
  • The Australian flag should not share a flagpole with any other flag
  • Do not fly the flag if it is damaged
  • Do not use the flag to drape a table
  • The Australian flag should not lie on the ground
  • Do not salute a flag that has already been lowered.

Many local MPs (Members of Parliament) provide Australian flags free of charge to community groups like Scouts. If you’re in need of a new flag, you should contact your local MP’s office.
