Organisers of the controversial Australian Conservative Political Action Conference have been warned that its use of the Australian flag breaches government guidelines.

Guardian Australia understands the commonwealth flag officer has contacted the organisers to warn CPAC Australia has breached rules that specify the flag "should be used in a dignified manner and reproduced completely and accurately".

CPAC Australia has used a segment of the flag in the shape of a star on logos to promote the three-day conservative talkfest in Sydney, including on Twitter ads that featured former Breitbart editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam.
