This is the flag that shows/brought our nation together..no need for change! No other country in the world would ever change their flag, just be proud of what you have now!
Actually plenty of countries have changed their flags. South Africa changed theirs in 1994.
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.
Well-ll ummm I AGREE BUT why not put a few Aussie icons on it like they did with our money? Say Steve ewin. Slim dusty, maybe peter Brock to name but a few or sir Donald Bradman kinda faded super imposed in the flag? Just my thought and I really think the Aboriginal flag should be Incorporated :)
pity there's not a dislike button on Fb
Peter may I add to your suggestion but first of all put your head in the dunny and get someone to flush it.
my grand father and father fought under the australian flag 1st and 2nd world wars. proudly so, lets keep it that way........ I say NO BLOODY WAY!
actually Royn.... no they didnt!!!!.... while the flag came into effect in 1901, and the final design was settled on in 1905.... but it was NOT the official flag of Australia until the 1953 Flag Act, which was signed and ratified by Lizzie on her 1954 trip to Australia..... if you accurately do your research... you will find that the "flag" too which you refer to in WWI and WWII was actually called the Australian Ensign.... which means:
A standard indicating nationality.
A sign or...
A standard indicating nationality.
A sign or emblem of a particular thing.
it is NOT referred to as the AUSTRALIAN FLAG!!!!!!
What flag was flown during the First and Second World Wars?
When the question of a new Australian flag is debated, it is sometimes said that the Australian National Flag should not be changed because Australians fought and died under it in two World Wars. This is only part of the story: 'On the battlefronts, Australian servicemen would as often see the Union Jack and the flags of the Allies as they would the Australian blue ensign.'(10) In both World Wars, the RAAF fought under the British Royal Air Force Flag.(11) In World War II, the RAN fought under the British Navy Ensign with the Australian blue ensign at the bow as an additional flag.(12) The Australian Army fought under Australian red and blue ensigns and the Union Jack.
so.... please... make sure you are accurate when you talk about the flag and WWI and WWII :)
I can not understand why every so often this comes up! History is set, wether you like it not. How would these people from other countries feel if other wanted to make changes to their original flag? I'm sure there would be one hell of a blue made about it.
its just not other that come to our Home land that wants the flag changed its also Aborigine wanting there make put on the Aussie Flag....
The aborigines were never a nation under one ruler and hadn't a clue about flags until they saw one. They have a design of their own and let them keep it but leave the national flag alone
