The Invictus Games flag is flying proudly from some of the most iconic locations in NSW as we count down to the Games kicking off on 20 October.
The Invictus Games flag is flying at the Anzac Memorial at Hyde Park, Juvenile Justice and Corrections Centres across NSW, Defence Force bases, and other locations around the state.
Members of the public are encouraged to make their mark by purchasing a flag to hang at their home, workplace, sporting club, school, military base, local club or community location to show support for our wounded warriors.
Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott said flying an Invictus Games flag was about honouring our servicemen and women across NSW in the lead-up to the games.
“It is a proud day for veterans and their families as the Invictus Games flag is flown from iconic locations across the state such as the Anzac Memorial,” Mr Elliott said.
“Having the Invictus Games flag flown from so many locations across NSW shows the community is getting behind our veterans and gearing up to cheer on the competitors.
“Sydney has a long record of hosting major global events making it the perfect location for the Invictus Games in 2018. It comes at a time when we commemorate the service and sacrifice of veterans during the Centenary of Anzac.”
The Invictus Games will involve 18 nations, 500 competitors with 1000 family and friends attending. The sports on display will include archery, athletics, powerlifting, road cycling, wheelchair basketball, swimming and more.
