'A Flag of Our Own' Design Series
Flag Design 3
The yellow sun of the aboriginal flag is enlarged and shared with the contemporary Australian colours of green and gold in the form of a jumping kangaroo. The kangaroo is partially outside the yellow sun to the left suggesting the two design elements are independent of each other but are captured in the same frame. The offsetting of the kangaroo also gives the total flag design a more dynamic look and feel.
"Our Flag is not just one of many political points of view. Rather the flag is a symbol of our national unity."
