The Warrant Officer of the Air Force, Fiona Grasby OAM, will host a flag raising ceremony in Blamey Square on the morning of 31 March 2021. The flag raising will involve the raising of the six flags that are traditionally flown within the Russell Offices compound – the Australian National Flag, the Aboriginal Flag, the Torres Strait Islands Flag, the ADF Ensign, the Navy ensign and the Air Force ensign.
The flags will be raised by six airman symbolising the six ranks worn by the airman workforce and their important contribution to Air Force. WOFF-AF Grasby will be supported in her role by a special friend of the Air Force Georgie O’Brien.
The Blamey Square flag raising provides an opportunity for Defence members employed within the Russell precinct to participate in a small way in Air Force’s commemoration. Following the flag raising Air Force will provide participants and observers with a coffee and a biscuit to start off their day.
