Comment on Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: it’s not over yet by Julie Taylor.

I am shocked at some of the responses above. Without question, on days chosen to fly any flags, the Aboriginal flag must be included, whatever the occasion!
Firstly, as acknowledgement of the Indigenous people who lived here before white man (and since).
Secondly, if the hill must be maintained as a memorial to war events involving Australia, then the inclusion of Australian Aborigines as soldiers in our wars must be so acknowledged because they are so often forgotten.
Flying the flag would definitely be a step towards inclusion and reconciliation, with such a public recognition of two “sacred” sites co-existing.

Congratulations Leo! Images look great – wish I could see it in “real life” at such a large scale, and agree with Domenico’s comment.
