  • Not enuff aboriginess

    Australia is one of the few countries in the world where a change of the design of the national flag is advocated. National flags do change over time, usually reflecting a major change in the country's constitutional arrangements or government. Advocates of change in Australia believe that another flag design would be more effective in representing Australia than the current flag. Such proposals for change are rejected for two broad reasons - the status quo should endure because the case for change is not accepted and the national flag is symbolic of the nation and it should be honoured without alteration. Many supporters of the national flag do not make any distinction between the flag and the nation - they display the flag to demonstrate their patriotic support for Australia. Advocates of change claim to be equally patriotic, they only want to have a different flag to use.

    The issue of a potential change is one that Flags Australia takes a strong interest in but, reflecting the mix of personal views of its members and a desire to be non-political, Flags Australia does not, as an entity, have an opinion - it neither supports a change of flag nor does it oppose such a change. It is however considered appropriate that Flags Australia provides expertise and a forum for debate and it fully reports both proposals for change and the views of advocates for the current flag. Flags Australia strives for balance in its coverage of the issue but does not resile from the view that the debate should be conducted with maximum respect and the arguments on both sides should be soundly based on correct facts about the history of flags in Australia and good design principles as they apply to flags. Emotions and politics legitimately play a role in connection with flags and ultimately the Australian political processes will determine the course of the flag debate.

    The main arguments advanced in respect of a new flag, for and against, are summarised below. The text seeks to clearly express in summary form the opinions of each side of the flag debate, though neither text represents the views of Flags Australia. The texts have not been reviewed or authorised by either ANFA or Ausflag.

  • Time to sever the umbilical cord.

    Australia may have been colonized by the British, but we are no longer British. We are a mature nation with our own (multicultural) identity and we need a flag that is entirely our own. This is not to disparage our heritage but, like Canada, South Africa and other former British colonies, we should be proud enough to forge our own path. The Union Jack on the flag is symbolic of an ongoing subservience to Britain.

  • Just hell no

    It would be very costly as in New Zealand they spent so much money just for the ballot. It would also cause riots, protests, and voice which could result in emergencies. May was and olympics have been held under this flag and if we change it not many nations would be able to recognise at as the Australian flag.

  • For our history and heritage

    While the Union Jack sits at the edge of our flsg, reminding us of our history and heritage as a nation, the flag already has the symbols of australia to represent us as unique, in the form of the Southern Cross. Our flag at the moment already gives us our unique character and heritage. We do not need to change it.

  • Australian Flag is Just Fine

    No, Australia should not change its national flag as it is a reminder of Australia's history, while also being a beacon for which Australia should move forward. Australia began as a Bristish colony, and as such its flag reflects that, however, the British portion is very small and the rest of the flag represents Australia's drive to move forward.
