National Flag

The Australian National Flag identifies a free and democratic people in a nation united in purpose. National Flag belongs equally to all Australians whatever their origins. Each symbol on the flag has a special meaning for Australians. The stars of the Southern Cross represent geographical position in the Southern Hemisphere, the Commonwealth Star symbolizes federation of States and Territories, and the Crosses stand for the principles on which nation is based - namely, Parliamentary Democracy, Rule of the Law and Freedom of Speech. It is the right and privilege of every Australian to fly the Australian National Flag.
