The flags of Greece and Australia wave in the wind in Australia’s capital city, Canberra.

As reported last week on GCT, The Greek Orthodox Community and Church of Canberra worked with various departments of Government in Canberra (both Federal and Territory) to assist in commemorating this occasion and ensure that our Hellenic heritage, culture, and history is able to be shared with all Canberrans.

Greek and Australian flags will fly in various locations across Canberra including:
  • Vernon Circle
  • Allara Street (across the foot bridge)
  • Nangari Street
  • Petrie Plaza
