Australia Day is celebrated this week. It marks the anniversary of the day Captain Arthur Phillip first raised the British flag at Sydney Cove and commemorates the arrival of European settlers to Australia in 1788. This observance is a designated public holiday that is celebrated with flag raising, barbecues, festivals and fireworks. The holiday is also a time for Australians to reflect on and celebrate everything associated with Australia.
