Chamber Flag Program
You may obtain flags that were hung, on a sitting day, for or in either Chamber (whichever is relevant), with an accompanying certificate, for purposes related to the conduct of your parliamentary business.
Flags and certificates are provided:
- for presentation to constituents or organisations;
- subject to availability; and
- on request to, and at the discretion of, the Serjeant-at-Arms or Usher of the Black Rod (whichever is relevant).
Constituent is defined in section 5 Parliamentary Business Resources Act 2017 as a person enrolled to vote or resident in your electorate (or State/Territory for a Senator).
It is expected that there will be an element of formality in the act and/or ceremony attached to the manner in which large flags are presented and that the presentation is made directly by you to the recipient. Large flags should not be distributed more generally. For example, large flags should not be included in general information packages to constituents.
It is expected that flags not be presented to businesses or commercial enterprises.
