Australian flag stolen from Anzac Hill

By ERWIN CHLANDA
 
The Australian flag was stolen from Anzac Hill on the Australia Day weekend.
 
The Alice Springs News discovered late on Sunday afternoon that a cover (pictured below) had been forced on the eastern flagpole.
 
The cover leads to the mechanism used for raising and lowering the flag, and the flag wire swung in the breeze with no flag attached.
 
Town Council Director of Technical Services, Scott Allen, confirmed the theft and damage to the flag pole at Anzac Hill Cenotaph.
 
“We were alerted to this damage at 7am on Australia Day and [and] it is estimated the theft occurred sometime around 3am that same morning,” he says.
