Flying the flag, Otahuhu, 1900.


The ceremony of unfurling the flag at the Otahuhu School on 11 August 1900. The flagstaff and the flag were a gift to the school from the ladies of the district. During the South African war a number of communities and schools in New Zealand erected flagstaffs and ceremonially 'unfurled the flag' - raised the Union Jack - as a patriotic gesture and one of loyalty towards the British Empire.
