AusFlag: NSW Flag Designs

NSW Flag Designs

From late 1996 Ausflag began promoting two new flag designs for New South Wales. For two months from 22 November 1996 these two flags flew in William St in Sydney, one of the major gateways into the city centre.


proposed flag for NSW

Flag Proportion: 2:3

This proposed flag for NSW is inspired by the simple elegance of the Norfolk Island and Canadian flags: flora centred between vertical panels. In this flag a central white panel is bounded by two light blue panels, the unofficial state colour of NSW. Prominent in the centre of the flag is a stylised waratah, the official floral emblem of NSW.

This flag was designed by Harold Scruby.


proposed flag for NSW

Flag Proportion: 2:3

This proposed flag for NSW is inspired by the style of the Northern Territory and ACT flags. This flag incorporates the unofficial state colour of light blue and the dark blue of the Australian flag, coupled with a stylised waratah, the official floral emblem of NSW. The Southern Cross continues the symbolic relationship between state and nation.

This flag was designed by Brendan Jones with input from Harold Scruby.
