“During one of those times in Opposition sitting up there at the back of the Parliamentary chamber, I found the WA flag had not been properly established as the State’s flag,” he said.

The bowling club’s flag will fill a gap on a large pole at the front of its clifftop headquarters on Bay View Terrace, Mosman Park.
