Australia Day 2021

26 January 1788

In the evening of the 26th the colours were displayed on shore, and the Governor, with several of his principle officers and others, assembled round the flag-staff, drank the king’s health, and success to the settlement, with all that display of form which on such occasion is esteemed propitious, because it enlivens the spirits, and fills the imagination with pleasing presages. ~~ Except from Journals of the First Fleet, Arthur Phillip and Watkin Tench.

And so began the development of the country – Australia – into what it is today. ❤

    1. Is the 4th of July your Independence Day, Kathy? Queen Elizabeth II is Australia’s sovereign and we are a part of the British Commonwealth. Australia Day is the anniversary of Captain Arthur Phillip claiming the country for Britain.
