  • FEDERATION CELEBRATION

    29 January at 21:28 from atlas

    THE ABOVE FLAG IS THE BASIS FOR WHICH ANY NEW AUSTRALIAN FLAG HAD TO BE BASED ON, WHEN THE COMPETITION FOR A NEW DESIGN WAS ANNOUNCED , ANY DESIGN NOT COMFORMING TO THIS PREREQUISITE WAS NOT CONSIDERED, HOW MANY OF THE 32,000 ENTRIES THAT FAILED THIS IS NOT REALLY EXPLAINED. THE WINNING DESIGN WAS BASICALLY THE EXISTING PRE FEDERATION VICTORIAN FLAG WITH THE ADDITION OF THE COMMONWEALTH STAR , NO MATTER WHAT SPIN PEOPLE TRY TO PUT ON THE PRESENT FLAG BEING SOMEHOW RELEVANT TO THE PRESENT DAY ,IT WILL ALWAYS BE A COLONIAL FLAG OF THE FORMER GREAT BRITISH EMPIRE ,NOTHING MORE,NOTHING LESS.
    FEDERATION CAME INTO EFFECT ON JANUARY 1st 1901, THIS IS REALLY AN UNACCEPTABLE DATE TO CELEBRATE ANYTHING SO I PROPOSE THAT WE CELEBRATE FEDERATION ON JULY9th. WHICH IS WHEN QUEEN VICTORIA SIGNED THE ROYAL ASSENT FOR THE FORMATION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA, THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT EVENT IN OUR NATIONAL HISTORY AND WE VIRTUALLY IGNORE IT BECAUSE WE CANNOT HAVE A HOLIDAY ON JAN.1. AMERICA CELEBRATES THE SIGNING OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDANCE AS THEIR NATIONAL DAY AND NOT WHEN COLUMBUS DISCOVERED IT. I HAVE NO OBJECTION TO RETAINING AUSTRALIA DAY ON JANUARY 26 BUT THE BIRTH OF OUR NATION SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED, WE NEEDED A HOLIDAY LATER IN THE YEAR , WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE MORE APPROPRIATE.
