When carried in a procession the Australian Flag should never be lowered as a form of salute.
When carried in single file the Australian flag should lead.
The staff should be held with the right hand higher than the left hand.
In a line of flags carried abreast it is preferable that an Australian flag is carried at each end of the line.
In a line of flags (an odd number) carried abreast, where only one Australian flag is available it should be carried in the centre.
In a line of flags (an even number) carried abreast and only one Australian flag is available it should be carried on the right side of the line (facing the direction of travel).
