The flag

The Flag–guest blog, deux

We enjoy flying the flag, as we have at Seguin and Bakers Island lighthouses. We don’t really care what flag it is—we just enjoy seeing it wave in the breeze. On Deal Island, however, there are many days when it’s simply too windy. Today was the first time in the last 10 days the flag wouldn’t shred.

Many Australians seem ambivalent about their flag. Something to do with the Union Jack. But I love looking at the Southern Cross constellation every night it’s clear and, there it is, on the flag.

I’m embarrassed to say, however, I flew it upside down once 4 years ago and twice this year.
