Promotional Hand Flags

Promotional Hand Flags are used by the public at parades or events that recognize or celebrate a milestone in history. Hand Flags are always visible on historic or important events within a country’s history. In Australia, hand flags are used at many events. One of the most significant is on Anzac Day.

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. Anzac Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand, a rare instance of two sovereign countries not only sharing the same remembrance day, but making reference to both countries in its name. When war broke out in 1914, Australia and New Zealand had been dominions of the British Empire for thirteen and seven years respectively.
