Aboriginal Flag to be placed on Geelong City Hall

History was made in Geelong on Tuesday 24th September 2013, when the Greater Geelong Council passed a motion to fly the Aboriginal flag on the City Hall alongside the Australian one. Councillor Eddy Kontelj introduced the motion by saying: "we will fly the Aboriginal flag prominently, proudly and permanently in Geelong".

Members and staff of the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-op alongside One Fire Reconciliation Group members were there to hear and applaud the decision. Work will be done to put up the new flag poles, and we look forward to the flag raising and celebrations.
