That Australian Flag Bathing Box

At Brighton Beach not far from downtown Melbourne, Australia is a famous row of colorfully painted “bathing boxes” (19th century huts built as shelters and changing rooms for beach goers).  Box Number Two, painted to resemble the Australian flag, is a popular photographic subject.  Very popular.  Consider this selection of postings found on Instagram.

Is there a vexillographic structure anywhere else in the world that enjoys such popularity?
