I'm happy for the british union flag to be removed from our flag. There was a time when I felt it should be left unaltered but the poms are so smug about the whole thing that I've decided they can get stuffed. So, in short, I wont be signing the petition! CHANGE THE FLAG! I like the proposed replacement!

How about it if we decided, collectively that you Glen are a bit smug and that you glen can get stuffed. Just something that I decided.

As a US Navy sailor stationed with my Australian Brothers, I served under this beautiful flag for 2 years. It represents a brave, bold, proud, loyal, fun-loving and kind people. It stands for all the great things they have fought for and achieved. Leave it be.

Hi Tony, Pride, Yes Exactly, some will just never understand just what the Australian Flag means, one day when they are in another Country, little English Spoken and turn on the TV to see a Football or Olympics and hear that song for Australia, and watch the Flag of our Nation hoisted, they will then Understand as they will if they are True Aussies, have goosebumps.....till then we all must keep the Spirit of the Flag alive - Regards Teresa.

Right-on, Tony. In Viet Nam, you fought for the people and your native land that flag proudly represents. You had mates give their lives for the same. To change it is to dishonor you, their and countless others' service. I cannot imagine the great Australian people standing for this. It's just un-Australian!

The Australians of this Country have fought for our Country, this is Australia and the flag stays as it is!, stop wanting to change everything because it is then considered politically correct, trying to keep everyone happy who isn't? This flag signifys for all of us Australians who love our country, we are prepared to stand up and be counted as true Aussies. Lena Allen - here, here! I agree Australia Day too, stop changing things for others who come to our country and do not embrace it!...

Leave us alone, don't like it then go back to where you all came from!

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).

Steve Adams Well this is what it is all about, this is how changes are made,OR given the chance to stand up and fight for what you believe in and I believe in this Country and our Flag, not a new flag to boost someones ego. I love our flag just the way it is.

And it just goes to show how little respect is left for the people who died under that flag and it is a disgrace that Australians need to be reminded of that fact by French school children who honour that flag daily.

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...

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.

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.

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...

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.
