'A Flag of Our Own' Design Series
Flag Design 2
The blue background and white Southern Cross of the current Australian flag are retained. The Aboriginal flag is left largely intact and is stretched and overlaid on the blue background. The white Southern Cross remains in its original position overlaying the stretched black and red bands of the Aboriginal flag. Relocating the yellow sun and omittting the green band added balance to the flag design. The Aboriginal flag and colours are treated with reverence by most progressive Australians and are integral to our future national identity.
"Our Flag is not just one of many political points of view. Rather the flag is a symbol of our national unity."
