Why are there more Australian flags than usual flying today?

It is because it is Australian National Flag Day.

Australian National Flag Day celebrates the first time the flag was flown, over the dome of the Exhibition Building in Melbourne on 3 September 1901. On this day Australia’s first Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Sir Edmund Barton, announced the winners of a competition to design a national flag for Australia.

3 September is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate the anniversary of the Australian National Flag by flying or displaying the Flag.

Where facilities permit, organisations are encoraged multiple Australian National Flags on this day.

This day also marks Merchant Navy Day. It is an opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of thousands of Australia’s merchant mariners during wartime. Organisations and individuals commemorating Merchant Navy Day are invited to fly the Australian Red Ensign. When the Australian Red Ensign is flown along with the Australian National Flag, the Australian National Flag is flown in the position of honour.
