Flag Pole Maintenance

A difficult access specialist was recently engaged to undertake urgent maintenance on the flag pole on the Government House Tower. The rope connecting the Governor’s Standard to the flag pole broke off from the pulley system in heavy winds, leaving the 2.24m x 4.56m standard stuck at the top of the pole. It's believed that this was the first time that maintenance was needed on the flagpole in at least 50 years.
