No Australian flag for Bondi Beach (but it looks pretty good in Alabama and Florida). The stupid council that opposed flying the flag—citing racism concerns—is now pondering a reversal of that decision:

First they feared inciting racial violence, then they said it was the cost and possible damage fitting a flag pole would cause to a heritage building.

But after a day of public pillory from critics, including Prime Minister John Howard and Premier Morris Iemma, Waverley Council conceded defeat yesterday.

It will now consider overturning its controversial decision to ban flying the Australian flag at Bondi Pavilion.

More on this from Malcolm Turnbull.

UPDATE. The flag also flies in New Jersey. Get with the program, Waverley Council!
