Large, special edition Kodak flag, flown at the Kodak Australasia factory site at Coburg in 1988, the year of the Australian bicentenary which commemorated the landing of the First Fleet in Sydney Cove in 1788. The flag features the Kodak 'K' logo, a green graphic of Australia and the text '1788-1988'.

This flag complements the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak Australasia manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to the Australasia region, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
