“Our policeman dropped in a bottle of champagne yesterday, we’ve had Kylie [Minouge] playing all morning, so there has been a lotofcelebrating in here,” Mr Wilson said.

Cobargo resident James Gunner stopped into the post office on Friday to deliver a collection of multi-coloured paper cranes made by his six-year-old daughter, Edith.

Edith had noticed the flag was missing from the post office on Wednesday. After her father explained the situation,she decided to make theorigami gift for Mr Wilson and Mr Moser.

Mr Wilson was sad to see the rainbowflag taken down, but was glad it hadprovokedconversation in the community.

“It’s fantastic to hear that children are asking questions and talking about it,” he said.

“And on the other end of the spectrum, I’ve had much older,conservativepeople come in to give us their support too.”

A few doors down, the Bowerbird Op Shop hung a string of coloured shirts along their shop front after the post office was ordered to take their flag down.

President of the Bowerbird committeeRos Hewett said it was her staff’swayofsupporting Mr Wilson and Mr Moser as integral members of the Cobargo community.

“We believe in them, if they can’t fly their colours then wewill,” she said.

Ms Hewett said the town was planning to cover itself in rainbow colours over the next weekas an act of defiance against the removal of the flag.

A bulk order of flags has been made, and will be sold on to shops along the main street, potentially leaving thepost office as the only shop front in Cobargo not displaying arainbow flag in the coming days.

“We’ll hang them from our shops, from our houses and our cars,” Ms Hewett said.

While she was upsetMrWilson and Mr Mosor could not fly their flag, she understood that everyone was entitled to their opinion in the postal surveyand not everyone agreed with her.

Australia Post said that as agovernment enterprise, itneeds to ensure its post officesare not used for making statements on political issues.

Currently, the flag pole outside the Cobargo post office stands bare.
