Event Accessibility

When planning an event, it is a legal requirement to consider the access needs of people with a disability. With over 16 per cent of the NSW population living with some form of disability, making an event accessible is extremely important.

NSW State Flag and Emblems

A nation's flag is an emblem which represents its people, its history and its ideals. There are other flags besides national ones. New South Wales and all of the other States and

Territories each have their own distinctive flag. The Government promotes the flying of both the National and the New South Wales flags and encourages everyone, especially young people, to become familiar with the protocols for the correct use of these flags.
