our forefathers fought for the rights of every Australian to have the right to be an Australia, Just like the song by Peter Allen that I still call Australia home. What's not broke doesn't need fixing. There is nothing wrong with our flag as it is! It has been at the helm of wars leading men into battle to fight for the freedom of every Australian so that we have the right to live free, why change that it makes no sence. I ALSO DO NOT WANT AUSTRALIA DAY CHANGED TO CITIZEN DAY- How bloody...

Yes but we fought in WW1 under the British flag, which was our flag then. We need to stand up for ourselves.

Colin Wardrop Correct 100% we have been flying the Current Australian Flag since 1901, thoe Many Schools in Australia till 1965 did only sing the God Save the Queen and fly the Union Jack, but also raised the Australian Flag after they performed School Assemb.

Did you know:. The Australian National Flag was raised for the first time at an Olympic Games in 1908 (London), celebrating a win for Australia in Rugby Union, at that time an Olympic event. (Although our flag had been in use for three years before the 1904 Olympics at St Louis (USA), the Australian "team" at the 1904 Games consisted of a single athlete who competed without success in the 110m hurdles!). The Australian National Flag is raised every morning at the school in Villers-Bretonneux...

Hi Dolly - Appreciate your Support, YES it will happen one day, but you in USA are very Flag Waving and seem to be very (one in - all in) on supporting your Flag; one many Australians would love to see more happen in Australia.

The Union flag part is still on the state flag of Hawaii.
It's use is part of where Australia was.
The Australian flag has been bravely carried into battle for 100 years next year, their memory counts as well!

Andrew, did not know about the Hawaii part thanks for that, YES the ANZAC's (Lest We Forget) gave all under our Nations Flag, and we have only had this signing up 78-hours and 6,000+ this is a Voice of many and till the day I pass I will fight to keep it our Flag. Thanks for the support. Teresa (Ex RAAF)

Leave our flag alone. Leave our heritage alone. Leave our history alone. To those that come to Australia and try to change us. Do not and if you still do go home to your own country LEAVE US ALONE!!!!. It's our history and our future. We are one but we are many.

The idea was by an Australian group. No need to mouth off and tell immigrants they aren't welcome.

Many men and women died for our flag, to change it would be saying they fought for nothing.

This is our flag, this is what our defence force fought for all those years ago, to stand up and be noticed, for freedom and to be proud too be called an Aussie, we have had so much taken away from us in Australia, and over run by foreign countries. Keep your hands of our flag and our nation, I am proud too be an Australian.We are all one, in one land and one law.

Our flag represents ALL Australians, yes that includes the indigenous, so why change it. We have done everything to recognise those of aboriginal descent as it is so don't give our truly national flag, the one that our diggers fought for over 2 World Wars. I like many other Australians lost relatives to both wars and I know their fight was not in vain while thos flag flies proudly atop the many flagpoles on our national monuments and buildings.
