Australian Defence Force establishments across the nation have been ‘flying the flag’ for wounded serving personnel and veterans to show their support and raise awareness for the upcoming 2018 Invictus Games hosted in Sydney. 

The international adaptive sporting event for wounded, injured and ill serving and former serving military personnel will be held in Sydney from 20-27 October 2018.

The ‘signature’ flag flying activity took place on the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Friday, and ADF establishments in every state and territory also took part in the activity to show support for the Games.

At the Invictus Games, competitors will compete in team and individual sports including, archery, athletics, indoor rowing, powerlifting, road cycling, sailing, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair tennis.

With 500 competitors and 1,000 families and friends from 18 nations expected to attend, Invictus Games Sydney 2018 will be a memorable event for participants and spectators alike.

"From Campbell Barracks in Western Australia across to Lavarack Barracks in north Queensland and as far south as historic Anglesea Barracks in Hobart, Tasmania, Defence personnel are behind each and every Invictus Games competitor," Brigadier Phil Winter, director general of the Invictus Games, said.
