Australian Aboriginal Flag Flying in Sydney Port


The Aboriginal Flag will be permanently installed on the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and the Government of New South Wales promises $ 25 million ($ 17.3 million) to install a third flagpole by the end of the year.

Raising the Aboriginal flag along with the flags of Australia and New South Wales was an important gesture to “close the gap,” New South Wales Prime Minister Dominique Perotet announced a budget for 2022/23. Said about.

“Our indigenous history should be blessed and acknowledged so that young Australians can understand the rich and lasting culture we have here with the past,” Perotet said. Said in a statement on Sunday.

“Permanent installation of the Aboriginal Flag on the Sydney Harbor Bridge does just that and is a continuation of the healing process as part of a broader move towards reconciliation.”

The flagpole is about 20 meters high, the same as a 6-story building, but the flag must have a strong enough attachment to withstand all weather conditions.

Transport for New South Wales and Aboriginal issues involves key Aboriginal stakeholders on the project.

Meanwhile, the state government has also promised $ 37.9 million to improve pre- and post-school care services and $ 206 million for sustainable agriculture programs.

Matt Kean, Treasury Secretary of New South Wales, said the groundbreaking program will voluntarily reduce carbon emissions and reward farmers to protect biodiversity.

The Perotet government will hand over the state budget for 2022-23 this week.

Perotet, Treasurer Matt Kean, and Planning Minister Anthony Roberts will make a budget announcement late Sunday morning in northwest Sydney.
