Posted by admin on Feb 10, 2010

The Federal Opposition has revealed that an inaccurate version of the Australian flag was flown at last month’s burial ceremony for Australian World War I soldiers in northern France.

The Veterans Affairs Department has confirmed problems with the flag involved one of the stars on the Southern Cross being in the wrong place.

It also had the Union Jack upside down and was a different shape.

The department says the problem is a matter for the Army, which conducted the ceremony in Fromelles.
