Each year as Air Force commemorates the anniversary of its formation on 31 March 1921, it conducts a ceremonial raising of the RAAF Ensign in Canberra. In Air Force’s Centenary year this ceremony will be conducted by the Air Force Officer Trainees of the Australian Defence Force Academy at Commonwealth Place in Canberra. The ceremony will be supported by the band of the Australian Defence Force Academy and will be the first event of the Centenary commemorations on 31 March.
All Air Force 2021 events will be COVID-compliant and in line with state and territory requirements. Please refer to this event page for updates.
