'A Flag of Our Own' Design Series
New Australian Flag Design 9
This design brings a return to the three colours of the Aboriginal flag with the addition of a silhouetted kangaroo overlaying the red and yellow bands. The blue background and Federation Star represent our colonial past and current national identity. The silhouetted kangaroo and red and yellow bands represent our unique southern continent girth by sea. It also represent a modern nation moving toward reconciliation with it’s indigenous peoples. The southern cross remains as a symbol of unity for all Australians.
"Our Flag is not just one of many political points of view. Rather the flag is a symbol of our national unity."
