This flag was designed by Bruce Baird, former Liberal Minister for the Olympic Games in New South Wales. Bruce Baird recently proclaimed his support for a new Australian flag. Mr Baird wrote in a letter to Ausflag on 24 October 1996:

"Here is my contribution to the new Australian flag. As you can see, it is based on a similar concept to the Canadian flag, with the two red stripes either side of the Southern Cross configuration."

This flag is a modification by Harold Scruby of Ausflag of Anthony Burton′s design and concept in Ausflag′s 1993 flag design competition.

The design shows the Southern Cross shining over the great red island continent, surrounded by the seas.

It is an evolutionary design utilising the Australian colours and elements of the existing flag and the Australian Red Ensign which was formerly used, unofficially and by popular practice, as the Australian national flag on land as well as at sea.

For the Ausflag 1997 Flag Campaign the colours in the above design were reversed to create a flag more in sympathy with the current Australian flag.

This flag is a variation by Harold Scruby of Ausflag of Mark Tucker′s design and concept in Ausflag′s 1993 flag design competition.

The only change has been to centre the Southern Cross above the stylised representation of Uluru to give the flag better symmetry and balance.

This design, by Harold Scruby of Ausflag, is a revolutionary rather than an evolutionary flag.

Incorporating the colours of the Aboriginal flag, it depicts a kangaroo, in silhouette against the sun, over the great red continent.

This design is half evolutionary and half revolutionary.

Whilst it retains both the Southern Cross and Federation Star of our current flag, it incorporates Australia′s national colours of Green and Gold.

However, there is relatively small public support for the use of Green and Gold on the national flag. There is no requirement for a flag to use the national colours (e.g. Netherlands has a red white, and blue flag, though its national colour is orange).
