Jour­nal­ist in pole po­si­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

WHEN West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly jour­nal­ist Mon­tana Ar­don wrote a story about Floreat res­i­dent David Price’s col­lec­tion of flags, she didn’t ex­pect the story would go vi­ral.

The 25-year-old dis­cov­ered her story on so­cial me­dia page ‘An­gry peo­ple in lo­cal news­pa­pers’, where it had re­ceived thou­sands of views, 200 shares and 172 com­ments. Fol­low­ers of the page were in­trigued by the vex­il­lol­o­gist’s 50th birth­day party where he was given a flag­pole and cel­e­brated with a flag erec­tion party.

Mr Price flies a dif­fer­ent flag daily de­pend­ing on events that have oc­curred in his­tory.
