Connecting Australians in America
20th Anniversary Commemoration of 9/11
The September 11 2021 Australian flag-raising ceremony at Bowling Green commemorates the Ten Australians who perished at Ground Zero, twenty years ago.
With the cooperation of Government, Military, and Civilian organizations, the 20th Anniversary Flag Raising ceremony at Bowling Green will feature special performances by leading Australian artists.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendees will be limited to comply with NYC Parks and New York State Regulations. Social distancing and hygiene protocols will be in effect.
Bowling Green is the site in New York City where the Dutch founded New Amsterdam in the early 1600s. It served as the young city’s town square and public meeting place. Bowling Green became the first public park in America on March 12, 1733.
It is also located just a few hundred meters from the site of the Twin Towers.
Bowling Green is intimately associated with both the beginning and end of the American Revolution and is synonymous with George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and other American Founding Fathers.
We wish to acknowledge the Australian performing artists who will be lending their talents on the day.
Analisa Bell, Amelia Cormack, Emily Mwila, Sarah Wadsley, Roanna Dempsey, MiG Ayesak, Ben McHugh.
Immediately after the ceremony concludes, all are invited to make their way to Beckett’s, a short distance away on Historic Stone Street, for a more informal celebration of the “Bonds of Mateship.”
