Australia Flag From the flag of Roma & David Bell (Flaggers since 2004)

My wife, Roma, and I are probably the most unique couple to enjoy “flagging” with Luke Gillian. Born in America, we have become avid cricket followers, since immigrating to Australia in 1977. In 2004, at the age of 58, we spent the seven weeks of the 5 ODIs and 3 Test Matches of the Australia tour of Sri Lanka with Waving The Flag.

In preparation for joining an overseas cricket tour, we had three options for a Sri Lanka tour, and chose Waving-the-Flag for its economic value and the freedom to join in or do our own thing. We found the Waving-the-Flag clients avid, knowledgeable and compassionately loyal Australian cricket fans, but their behaviour at the game epitomised the virtues of the gentleman’s game of cricket: acknowledging excellence of play on both sides and respecting the opposition fan’s right to back their own team, passionately.

Our contact with Luke began at the Colombo Airport at near midnight. He came to ensure we safely reached the tour. We have traveled the world for years and were quite capable of reaching our own accommodation, but the thoughtfulness expressed by Luke in meeting us at this ungodly hour was heartfelt.

In 2008 and beyond, Roma and I plan to join Luke and his band of mostly 30-somethings for his tour of the West Indies. We will undoubtedly go to bed before all the others on tour each night and spend our free days engaged in our other passions of snorkeling on coral reefs of the world and bird watching. However, Waving The Flag provides us with just what we need in a tour: arranged economical accommodation, tickets and transport to the matches and the freedom to mix in or to do our own thing if we desire.

Luke Gillian may not have played cricket for Australia, but having attended more than a century’s number of test matches, his credentials as a representative of Cricket Australia could never be questioned.

Australia Flag THE FLAG MISSION

“The purpose of Waving The Flag is to encourage more people to travel globally to support and express their pride in Australia and Australian 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 Australia and the countries we visit.”
