In 2011 the Harefield Flag was sent to Artlab. Initially the flag was wetcleaned. It was sandwiched between net to secure fragile sections and washed out flat in a shallow depth of water. The Adelaide High School community, like the people of Harefield, will continue to remember and honour the sacrifices made by the Australian and New Zealand servicemen during World War 1. The Harefield Flag is part of the history and tradition of Adelaide High. Respect it, be proud of it, for as such it is an integral part of our school. (The Harefield Flag, Dec 1963, p. 2)
