On the occasion of the 208th anniversary of the May Revolution, on 25 May was held the traditional raising of the flag of the Argentine Republic, in Canberra's Latin American Plaza. At the event were present representatives from the diplomatic corps as well as armed forces attaches from several different countries.
Additionally, on 30 May was the celebration with the argentine community in Australia, as well as with representatives from Embassys from all over the world and officials of the Australian government. Those who attended enjoyed live music, a tango dance show performed by a local couple, and typical argentinian cuisine, such as "locro" and "empanadas", accompanied by wines from Argentina.
The event also was an opportunity to recognize Rodolfo Rivarola and Carlos Broens, argentine citizens living in Australia, for their valuable contributions..
