An Aboriginal flag waves in front of the giant television screen as thousands gather in Melbourne's Federation Square on February 13, 2008 to listen to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd deliver an historic apology in parliament to the Aboriginal people for injustices committed over two centuries of white settlement.  The apology was viewed as a watershed in Australia, with major television networks airing it live and crowds gathering around huge screens in major cities to witness the event.
