Hawkesbury Council’s Aboriginal Flag Raising Ceremony

During Reconciliation Week, I was pleased to attend the first raising of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island flags, which will now be flown continuously at the Hawkesbury City Council Chambers. It has taken a long time but this is a significant and historic moment for Aboriginal people of the Hawkesbury which will increase a sense of belonging and is a positive step towards reconciliation.
