The Australian embassy in Dublin has become the first in the world to fly the Aboriginal flag. The flag was hoisted alongside the Australian national flag on Friday, as a new permanent feature of the embassy on St Stephen’s Green.
The flag was raised as part of a digital ceremony which included the Australian minister for Indigenous Australians, Ken Wyatt, and Connaught rugby star John Porch. It also saw pre-recorded videos from Australian Aboriginal people living in Ireland. Though the flag has been flown from buildings in Australia and on specific dates elsewhere, the embassy in Dublin is the first international post to take the decision whereby the
flag will fly in tandem with the Australian national flag all year round.
