About the Design

Flag Design Description

#1 Southern Cross

The Southern Cross has been part of Australian identity for over 200 years. It takes its rightful place on the left of the flag (the "hoist") - the most important part of a flag.

#2 The Chevron

The chevron separating the Southern Cross and the Green & Gold symbolises progress and is inspired by the boomerang, which honours Australia's indigenous heritage.

#3 Green & Gold

The right of the flag (the "fly") contains rows of green and gold - Australia's national colours, and the colours of the Golden Wattle. There are 7 rows - one for each State and one for the Territories.

So why do we need a new Australian flag?

Australia's current Union Jack-based flag is a relic from Australia's colonial days. This symbol of colonisation serves as a painful reminder to indigenous Australians of their suffering during those times. Australia needs a new flag that embraces the nation's independent identity and unites all Aussies, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. The Southern Wattle flag represents reconciliation, and offers a way forward. The design consists of the Southern Cross and 7 rows of Green and Gold, separated by a boomerang-inspired chevron. As an alternative Australian flag, it has broad appeal by not containing elements that represent any specific group or ethnicity. And it may one day become Australia's new national flag.
