Brian has sent in this great shot of the flag walk by Lake Burley Griffin at the dying of the light.

The convention is that if flown at night they must be lit, which these are.

Not only lit, but each flag must have it’s own individual light.

I’ve often wondered about these flags. I’ve always thought it was international flag protocol that national flags must not fly at night, and that they be raised at sunrise and lowered at sunset. I wonder if any complaints have ever been made about this flag display.
