Aboriginal flag costs nothing to fly over the bridge
Tuesday 21 June 2022
Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne says Premier Perrottet’s claim that flying the Aboriginal Flag permanently over the Harbour Bridge will cost $25 million is absurd.
The Inner West has recently become the first Council in the state to change protocol to prioritise the Aboriginal Flag over the NSW Flag.
The NSW Government can do exactly the same thing now to fly the Aboriginal Flag permanently over the Harbour Bridge at zero cost.
Inner West Mayor, Darcy Byrne said, “It’s good that the NSW Government has finally agreed to fly the Aboriginal Flag over the Harbour Bridge but there really is no need to spend $25 million on a flag pole.
“They could simply follow our Inner West lead & change their protocol to prioritise the Aboriginal Flag over the NSW Flag. All Australian Governments should do the same.”
