Does it show our History? Is it easily identifiable?
A FLAG TO TAKE US INTO THE FUTURE
If you would prefer to read:A flag that has no need of interpretation. What you see is exactly what it means, Eureka, green and gold , kangaroo, Aboriginal recognition as 1st. peoples, Torres Straight Islanders came to Australia via PNG in a 2nd. wave.( The dates may be up for conjecture but the first wave came into the northwest of Australia via Java at least 15-20,000 before the PNG influx) Epsilon star for true Southern Cross and Federation star off our current flag. Our current flag is and always will be a colonial flag of the BRITISH EMPIRE, no amount of legislation will change this fact.At the moment the Aboriginal flag has an official recognition status and as such is flown on government buildings, however , if a new design is adopted ,whatever that may be , that represented us ALL then that would change as we would not need it. It would be a shame to let the Aboriginal flag fade into history, that is why I have it represented in this design. The different facets of the flag could be taught to school children in history classes and in that way the EUREKA and ABORIGINAL flags will live forever. The only way to include all Australians is to have a flag that draws on what little history we do have, a flag that miners from all parts of the globe swore an oath under, the EUREKA flag. The British want us to stop using their flag (apart from a few fossils who still live in EMPIRE ) and get our own, and I agree it is way overdue !!!!
