My enquiry also asked about Flag Stations. The Army says:
David Cohen, 11 November 1997
There are no special regulations for flag stations other than they are required to fly a large (3.6 x 1.8m) Australian National Flag on: Sundays, Australia Day, the anniversary of the Queen's accession to the Throne (6 Feb.), ANZAC Day, the anniversary of the Queen's coronation (2 June), official birthday of the Queen (as directed by Army HQ), the Queen Mother's birthday (4 Aug), Australian National Flag Day (3rd Sept), when an artillery salute is fired at a flag station, when directed by the Governor-General, on other occasions as ordered by Army HQ.
Here is a list of the days that the Australian Government encourages citizens to fly their national flag:-
The Australian National Flag (specifications and guidance for
use) Article 13 (Government Buildings) states that "The flag may be displayed at night, but only where it is properly illuminated".
Christopher Southworth, 4 April 2003
Protocols for flying the Australian National Flag can be found in part 2
of the ‘Australian Flags’ booklet (https://www.pmc.gov.au/resource-centre/government/australian-flags-booklet-part-two).
