Flag Day

Originally published as a Letter to the Editor in The Australian 6 September 1996.

So, apparently September 3 has now been officially proclaimed "National Flag Day". Apologies, but I blinked and missed it.

When we proclaim our own flag, a flag which truly depicts our egalitarian spirit, which represents us all equally, which symbolises nationhood, not subordination, we'll have no further need for an annual flag day.

Then we'll have Flag Day every day of the year.
