I have so enjoyed reading these comments, the determination of the people have spoken. I do not understand those comments against. as no real argument has been put forward. I come from a long line of Military family and understand the chain of command. Those who haven't a clue what I'm talking about, guess the word Discipline would do, working together as a team in order to achieve a common goal. SNAFU is what has happened here, so guess it's up to the workers to fix the problem. The people...

The people of Australia have come out of the wood work and are standing up for something they believe in and feel very strongly about. BRAVO is what I say. Makes me proud to be an Australian.
Thank you for the Comments Gail, guess we can also add "FUBAR" to the list :)
Yes, snafu. Situation Normal All Fouled Up.
Why shouldnt our native australians have part in the australian flag!!!!. I say change it
The diggers of WWI and WWII did not fight under the flag we have today. They fought under a red flag. It was changed in 1953 as a political move against communism by Menzies.
While recognising the enormous sacrifices of Australian servicemen and women, the fact remains that the blue Australian flag as we now know it, did not come into widespread use until it was proclaimed by the Menzies Government in the Flags Act of 1953.
More bloody semantics. Who cared whether Menzies proclaimed it or not. They knew what they had despite idiotic politicians. Are you people so weak minded that you needed a bloody politician to tell you what you like?
This is Australia let it remain that way. If you don't like it leave. The government has taken everything else away from Australians to please the minority groups well how UNAUSTRALIAN is our Government. I am an Australian and proud let all others that call themselves Australian start sticking up for your rights and voicing your opinions. Remember folks freedom of speech and strength in numbers. Citizen Day pffft half of the so called new citizens don't even take the pledge on Australia Day deport them I say and that is all.
Good on ya Jenny, you tell them thats the Aussie Spriit !!!
One Word! F R E E D O M..................... Think Twice about this................Its NOT the Aussie thing to Do.. I was Born Under this FLAG and I Will DIE under it as well........................OI OI OI..
Aussie Aussie Aussie - 100% agree, those do-gooders in the Rep Movement are off their Rockers to think we can just alter our History and Flag :)
And you WONDER Why Australians Fire up ........ We are Such a Loyal Country That STANDS by Our Flag............ Wonderful to Know we Love our Flag more than the Voices trying to Make Change for all the WRONG reasons .....
I am not fired up, I am a Queenslander - I am just HOT a Tad......Ray Martin and his Team who wish to make these alterations needs to get a life (Liked him once on TV - Not Now) Sure one day we will be a Country fully on its own, but Leave the Bloody FLAG Alone !!!
Not you get Fired up Teresa Bayes.... LOL ... But the True Aussie Spirit Gets fired up !! Sometimes we dont like change, and sometimes its for the Best ... As i have to had Family Die under this Wonderful Flag for War...And still war remains quite active in other countries...... Im Sure alot of our Great Grandfathers would be turning in their graves with such a dissapointing Change of the Austrlain Flag....
