Respect the flag - stand for the Australian anthem

Add your support for Australians standing for the singing of the national anthem.

All sporting codes, clubs and civic groups when playing the anthem should announce - as a mark of respect for our flag, nation and forebears - particularly the ANZACs and our soldiers - a request that Australians stand for the playing of the anthem.

Divisive Muslim-Australian and boxer Anthony Mundine sought to promote his bout with working class Australian boxing success story Jeff Horn using divisive identity politics. Mundine said Horn had got to where he was due to 'white privilege' and that Mundine would not stand for the Australian national anthem at their bout, saying it was a 'white supremacy' song. Our Facebook poll demonstrated that Australians strongly disagree and believe Australians should stand for the national anthem.

The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet protocols for playing the anthem are deficient, merely saying it is 'customary to stand'. There is no positive expectation or direction from the PM's office that Australians should be asked to stand out of respect.

Note: The Australian Conservatives respect the history surrounding our National Anthem, which we share each year in our Action Plan marking when 'Advance Australia Fair' became our anthem.
