Australian National Flag to fly at Half-Mast

Sunday 25 February 2024

 His Excellency Dr Hage Geingob


His Excellency Dr Hage Geingob, President of Namibia, died on 4 February 2024.

As a mark of mourning and respect, and in accordance with protocol, the Australian National Flag should be flown at half-mast all day on Sunday 25 February 2024Australia wide from all buildings and establishments occupied by Australian Government departments and affiliated agencies. Other organisations are welcome to participate.

When flying the Australian National Flag with other flags, all flags in the set should be flown at half-mast.

  • If a set of flags includes the flags of other nations, it would be appropriate to seek permission from the diplomatic representatives of that nation to half-mast their flag.
  • An acceptable half-mast position would be when the top of the flag is a third of the distance down from the top of the flagpole.
  • Information on flag protocol is available at

The financial and staffing implications arising from weekend flag marshal duties are the responsibility of each organisation.  

Your assistance is appreciated.

NSW Police will charge officer Beau Lamarre with two counts of murder over the disapparance of former TV reporter Jesse Baird and his current partner Luke Davies.

They will allege the constable, who handed himself in to Bondi Police Station on Friday morning, used his police glock to kill the pair.

Sources say at least one bullet casing was found at the Paddington home that was identified on Wednesday as the initial crime scene in the investigation.

Police believe Lamarre, who is currently assisting police with their inquires at Waverley Police Station, used a white van he drove to Newcastle to dispose of the bodies.

Officers are currently looking for the van, and have appealed for information relating to the whereabouts of a white Toyota HiAce with NSW registration CW82PM.
