The yellow sun of the Aboriginal flag is located in the top-right corner overlaying the green and black bands symbolising unity and reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Australia.

The overlaying of the Southern Cross is a further symbol of national unity. The overlaying of the Southern Cross is a further symbol of national unity.
"Our Flag is not just one of many political points of view. Rather the flag is a symbol of our national unity."
