When and how to fly Australian flags
For detailed information about flying and using Australian flags, see:
ANZAC Day - 25 April 2019
ANZAC Day is a day of special significance for all Australians, particularly our servicemen and women, and veterans.
In accordance with Australian flag protocol, the Australian National Flag should be flown at half-mast on Thursday 25 April 2019 from dawn until noon in your locality, at which time the flag should be raised to the peak of the flag mast for the remainder of the day. This advice applies to all Victorian Government buildings and establishments.
Local government agencies as well as non-government organisations are also welcome to follow this protocol.
The financial and staffing implications arising from flag marshal duties are the responsibility of each organisation.
Recipients of this message are requested to advise all agencies within their portfolio.
Your assistance is appreciated.
