| The Flag Mission|
"The purpose of Waving The Flag is to encourage more people to travel to support and express their pride in Australia, and the game of cricket in a fashion that does not isolate from the cultural or sporting influences that make each cricket tour unique, whilst promoting and maintaining positive social and sporting relations between us and the countries we visit.”
| About The Flag|
Welcome to 'The Flag',
The Flag (as it is endeared) was raised in 2001 by myself (Luke Gillian), and Darren Moulds (retired), after 6-years following Australian Cricket to all test nations of the world, and created to provide a relaxed and affordable touring alternative to the high priced, ex-test cricketer hosted formal tours.
Our tours are renowned for being fun and affordable, and simplify touring for those uncomfortable with independent travel, wanting the burden of basic organization removed, or wish to be with a like-minded group. To make you comfortable and confident with your decision to Flag, the tour programs are designed to detail our knowledge and passion for the game and destination.
Before each tour, The Flag extensively travels each region to collect the most up to date information relating to hotels, transport, dining, entertainment, and venue access. No matter how often we tour a nation, things change, so we revisit to make sure we still know where you're going before sharing our experiences with a hands on approach to ensure you take home more than just a suntan.
Importantly, The Flag does not discourage any age group from touring. Our tours focus on providing the essentials for a high value 'Australian Cricket Tour' for everyone, and as much as we visually and vocally support Australia, win or lose, we conversely remain spirited to applaud the opposition and their effort to compete to the best of their abilities.
Such has our passionate involvement with cricket been former Australia Test Captain Steve Waugh asked me to write the prelude for his 1999 No Regrets tour diary. Steve also wrote of me in his in 2005 Autobiography, 'Out Of My Comfort Zone', and provided this priceless reference of support.
Having supported Australia at almost 200 Australian Test Matches, and the only Australian supporter to have seen Australia play in every Test country, plus the UAE and Holland, I look forward to welcoming you on tour with The Flag and sharing my unique cricket touring experiences with you.
'The Flag' is not a licensed Travel Agent and do not include international or domestic travel in any tour! Our 'land only' tours include what we detail in tour and nothing else.
