Indigenous Flags

Gippsport Community Solutions recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as traditional and ongoing custodians of the lands that we live, work and play on. We pay respect to Elders past and present and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded. We continue to commit to recognise that First Nations people have a right to self determination and a continuing and vital connection to land, water and community.

The LGBTIQ+ Flag and the Disability Pride Flag
