Flag Raising

Wongain – (means fly in Taribelang language) Flag Raising

The event will commence with a ceremonial raising of the flags by invited elders and dignitaries. At the core of the organisation for this symbolic event the 2017 theme ‘Our languages matter’ will be reflected in the cultural presentation of performance and speeches.

The formal part of the event will be followed by a supper and opportunity for all participants to socialise and interact. This is an opportunity for local people and visitors to the region to embrace a moving cultural experience. It portrays the purpose and significance of the flags and the flag raising event which imparts the importance of knowledge and the survival of our ancient living culture through language, to which people from the community and visitors to the region gather to honour.
