I was born under this flag served under this flag respect this flag and want to die under this flag.
Anthony would you like to be buried in Great Britain because at the moment that's where our flag belongs...It's embarassing, confusing for people outside Australia and it shows insecurity and immaturity in not being able to finally grow up and be ourselves We are no longer a part of the British Empire which ended ages ago, it's time for the 57 yr old bloke to move out of the family home because ironically Mummy and Daddy left ages ago.
Ron.. if you think halls flag is confusing for outsiders, I am here to report I know the difference in the Australian flag and the British flag... kinda hard not to ..
I'm from Texas so pretty well outside Australia :-)
Ron, my flag belongs on my flagpole in my yard and it's not broke so I don't want it fixed.
Maybe you should move from Adelaide to Sydney, New South Australia (get rid of the Wales reference). But wait, Sydney was named in honour of the British Home Secretary of the time and Adelaide after the spouse of a UK King...........so that would be from Kuarna Aboriginal country to Cadigal Aboriginal country!
Might be time to emigrate if you are that burdened by the Union Jack on our flag!
@Ron, you are out of line my friend, stating this in your words, we have had a lot of Good Aussies & Migrants Served and Died to make Australia FREE and you will only be causing issues; one we do not Support. If you continue to act like this, sorry but this is a Vote of Support of Our Nations Flag, not to PR your views, if you do NOT support it, why did you sign?
spoken like a true wog
Ron Corso, it is you who is the immature moron living at home with mum and dad, never served under the flag, cant stand those who believe in being a patriot, and, will never understand the pride that goes with those who currently servre or who have served. If you dont want to live under our current national flag, get a passport and fuck off. By the way, I am 57, have my own home, joined the Army at 17, have been deployed twice and still serve my country.
Hi Anthony, I Blocked Mr Ron Corso, as he started to SPAM this Important effort of the True Australians some just like to not accept the fact's of the matter, Anthony, we ALL appreciate your support - Regards Teresa.
pull your head in ron corso we are still part of the commonwealth last i looked maybe you should grow up and stop sounding like a spiolt ass.
Mr Corso, are you the one who is embarrassed and ashamed because Fiji decided to change their flag and you feel that it is time to step into the 21st century? Well you appear to be in the minority here. The colours of red, white and blue make it the most recognised flag in the world and the most beautiful.
It's the flag that brought our proud nation together. I'm not aware of any of our real heroes ever having died under a 'Sports Flag' to grant us the freedom that we enjoy!
Michael, since 1901 we have looked up and United in One through many Conflicts, held our Pride with Our Australian Flag. The People have spoken many times, this is all about our Freedom, from the ANZAC's through to our current Overseas and Local Deployments, we MUST all fight to retain our Given Rights, Australia is a Nation like No Other and we are so Aussie that Our Flag is displayed all over the World, some 3,000 Signed this in just over 24-hours, at this rate 1/2 Million within 6-Months,...

As the Voice of Many will show NEVER TOUCH OUR FLAG.
Well said Max, What other country on the planet has another county's flag in the corner of their own??? Yes aknowledge our past but it's time for the kids ( now well and truly grown up) to leave home and make their own way in the world
If a war started in Australia, you would be happy to have the UK part of the flag with the UK soldiers, it shows our unity, nothing else. rather the UK than USA
Time to open your mouth and change feet buddy!
The flag of Australia is a defaced Blue Ensign: a blue field with the Union Jack in the canton (upper hoist quarter), and a large white seven-pointed star known as the Commonwealth Star in the lower hoist quarter. The fly contains a representation of the Southern Cross constellation, made up of five white stars – one small five-pointed star and four, larger, seven-pointed stars.
The flag's original design (with a six-pointed Commonwealth Star) was chosen in 1901 from entries in a worldwide...
The flag's original design (with a six-pointed Commonwealth Star) was chosen in 1901 from entries in a worldwide competition held following Federation, and was first flown in Melbourne on 3 September 1901; this date has been proclaimed as Australian National Flag Day. A slightly different design was approved by King Edward VII in 1902.
Max if you want to change our flag then I think its time for you to move on
No flag brought anything. The reason your not aware of any of our real heroes is because you're not aware. There are no 'real' heroes. They died and so will you.
Just repeating, no hero's died under the boxing kangaroo flag but plenty of selfish bastards got rich under it.
Who came up with this Idea in the first place? Just who decided we needed to Change our Flag, Change Anzac Day, Change Australia Day, My question would be to that person, Are you even an Australian? No other Country would even have allowed this idea to have gotten this far! Australians unite and stand strong. Now is the time, don't just sit on the side lines waiting for someone else to do all the work. Don't let our for Fathers down, they fought to keep this Country free of idiots like this...

It is Idiots like this person who cause wars. For God's sake, some one silence him please, he is making a mockery of our Flag and our Country.
Ausflag and Ray Martin & his Cronies and the Powers with Lot's of Money, thats who !!!
As you can see I have OUR flag as my profile picture. If you want to talk about it get you facts right. What alot of you refer to in the 1st quarter or the Upper Hoist as the Union Jack is actually the Union. The "jack" came from the part of ship in which the union was flown / hoisted known as the "Jack" which is on the aft end of a ship.
Keep Anzac Day in its current form... what a joke..... you stating FACTUAL history should be taught in schools... while you sprout your version of facts in regards to the Australian Ensign/Australian Flag!!!!!
As a child at school we had morning assembly where we swore our allegiance to her majesty and saluted the flag but the bloody republicans and labour wankers did away with it so now you have nothing.
if you don't like our flag or who we are it's quite simple FUCK OFF.
Uh - it's an Australian born idea. Pretty sure it's their flag as well. They have the same rights as you do to be here.
I went your web address Michelle to have a look at the design of this flag but they don't show it. Are they ashamed?
If it's not broken don't fix it leave the aussie flag the way it is, my family on both side's fought for freedom in both world war's and were lucky to return to australia they loved this flag and so do I , if it was to change I would still keep my beloved unoin jack with the southeren cross.
Appreciate the Support Matt, I do speak for All who have signed and support our National Fag :)
cool teresa please like ART ARMY sydney
I'm all for keeping the flag, lets just change the picture on it :-)
Each to their own, my personal op...Oz is sun, sand n humans. Let this reflect in what we show the world...On the other hand, I fully respect and understand when the diggers want it left as is...It is them that I owe the life-style I choose to live...
Don't even consider changing the red, white and blue, bugger the sun and the sand, you dont live in the bloody desert.
The designs for a new flag are ugly and a joke.
If you dislike the Aussie flag then you can leave and live elsewhere!
I disagre. I think all we need to do is swap the Union Jack for either a kangaroo that is red and faces right.
Peter, what about the African,Indonesian,New Guinean,Moari tribes who roamed here millions of years ago? Do you want to add their symbols as well?
Our soldiers are still fighting with this flag has did our fathers & grandfathers we are very proud of them
The Australian National Flag is raised every morning at the school in Villers-Bretonneux in France, in memory of the thousands of Australian casualties in liberating their village in 1917 (during the First World War).
if we change our flag all the soldiers that died under the flag did so for nothing.
