Australian Library refuses to hand over historical flag fragment


Anonymous Patron writes "From ABC Online, Australia: The State Library of Victoria will not hand over a piece of the original Eureka flag which state's Premier, Steve Bracks, believes should be on permanent display in Ballarat.

Mr Bracks is among 2,000 people who attended a ceremony in Ballarat to mark the 150th anniversary of the Eureka Stockade today.

He has written to the State Library in Melbourne and the National Library in Canberra, asking them to give their fragments of the original miners' flag to the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, where most of the flag is displayed."
