New flag design

Mentioned on a radio station, former senator Bob Brown has designed a new flag. I think it would appeal to the traditionalist and would ease the way for people to be accepting of a Republic down the track.

what do you think?

Re: New flag design

I don't like anything with an animal on it, especially a Kangaroo. It looks like a QANTAS flag

Not a new concept. The Kangaroo design was taken from our early pennies.

Re: New flag design

It looks half arsed, looks more like a poster. If they are going to change it, then change it, do away with the whole lot and start fresh. What is a flag anyway? what purpose does hold in 2015?

To me, if they are going to do away with the flag that we know and recognise,then they may as well just have a white flag with the words Australia on it.

I tend to agree. A flag shouldn't be a 'compromise' for a nation with a divided opinion on whether to be a republic or not.

A flag should represent what the country is and what it stands for. Though at this point I don't think Australia stands for much. Though I would like to think we stand for freedom, education and living.

Re: New flag design

One day the Union Jack will be irrelevant to our direction, an only a symbol of our past, BUT I think the current flag is beautiful and I wouldn't want it to go , but it has to change.

It maybe acceptable in the short term as we evolve to mod the flag as we head towards the R word.

It already is IMO, monarchy or not.

What influence does great Britain or the monarch have on anything that happens here?

Pre-dates Federation and was a result of our one and only Revolution .

The movement invoked political reform.
