Flag flying low for France

THE Australian Flag above the Derwent Valley Council Chambers in New Norfolk is flying at half-mast today and tomorrow (Tuesday) as a mark of respect and mourning for those who lost their lives during recent events in the French capital.

Across Tasmania, all councils will fly their flags at half-mast tomorrow as a means of demonstrating sympathy and support to those communities affected by last Friday's violent attacks in Paris.

“In our peaceful part of the world, it is difficult to comprehend such wanton violence but it is important we stand against it,” Local Government Association of Tasmania president Doug Chipman said.

“Flying our flags at half-mast not only shows our concern for the victims and their communities, but also our determination to be strong," Alderman Chipman said.

“Our thoughts, our sympathy and our condolences are with all those impacted,” he said.
