The flags that fly on the Sydney Harbour Bridge should be a symbol of unity, respect and reconciliation. They should be a representation of the true Australia.
So why does the Aboriginal flag only fly 19 days of the year?
On January 26, Sorry Day, Reconciliation Week and Naidoc Week an Aboriginal flag is taken out of storage to replace the NSW state flag, one of two flags that ordinarily fly on top of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.
It’s a symbolic gesture, meant to recognise and celebrate Australia’s Aboriginal population.
