Saturday, September 3 is our flag’s 115th “birthday”, and you can join the celebrations!

In 1996 then Governor-General Sir William Deane officially proclaimed that "to commemorate the day in 1901 on which the Australian National Flag was first flown, September 3 in each year shall be celebrated as Australian National Flag Day".
