Flags at the City of Bayswater Civic Centre will fly at half-mast until further notice to honour the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Mayor Filomena Piffaretti expressed her sadness at the passing of the monarch who devoted her life to the service of others.

“On behalf of the City of Bayswater, I would like to extend my condolences to the Royal Family as they grieve the loss of their beloved Queen.

“Today, as a community, we reflect on the years of public service the Queen dedicated to the Commonwealth of Australia.

“In February this year, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.

“The City of Bayswater recently marked the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by joining local school children to plant trees at Camboon Primary School and Durham Road School.

“Planting trees was a fitting way to honour the Queen and will now serve as a lasting reminder for future generations of the Queen’s legacy.

“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been an inspiration and the longest reigning British monarch.”

It is customary to fly the Australian National Flag at half-mast from the time of announcement of the death of The Sovereign until the day after the funeral, except on the day the accession of the new Sovereign is proclaimed.
