This is an updated and more finished version of previous designs with adjusted colour.
Proposed New National Flag of Australia “Skippy Oz”
The green, gold and blue with white stars.
Symbols:
+Star of Federation - 7 points in starlight white representing the Commonwealth of Australia.
+Southern Cross or Crux Constellation - 5 stars; 4 crux stars have 7 points and small star has 5 points, in starlight white, constellation of the southern hemisphere by which we can navigate, also indicates islands belonging to Australia.
+Kangaroo - iconic Australian native marsupial animal resident mascot featured on the Australian coat of arms, also known as Skippy, who has the Federation Star at heart.
Colours:
+Heritage Federation Green - representing the native flora of Australia and Australia's federation, the green vegetation on the land, serving as the background for the Federation Star.
+Deep Royal Blue - representing the sky above us and the sea surrounding our island continent Australia, also honouring the Australian Constitution and the influence of the Commonwealth in guiding our nation.
+Sunshine Gold - honouring the sun that provides us light, warmth and energy, honouring the Indigenous people and animals of Australia, also represents the golden sands of our beaches.
+Starlight White - honouring the stars by which we navigate.
The colours loosely spell out the letters of AUSTRALIA:
A in deep royal blue representing the sky above us and the sea surrounding our island continent Australia.
U in sunshine gold as the top line of the Kangaroo.
S in heritage federation green as the background for the Federation Star.
T in starlight white as the southern cross or crux constellation.
R in sunshine gold in the body of the kangaroo.
A in deep royal blue representing the sky above us and the sea surrounding our island continent Australia.
L in sunshine gold in the body of the Kangaroo.
I in sunshine gold as the line from tail tip to foot tip of the Kangaroo.
A in royal blue representing the sky above us and the sea surrounding our island continent Australia.
The outline of the icons overall loosely has the appearance of the shape of Australia.
Skippy could also be balancing on the tail with feet kicking into the air and arms pushed behind for balance if you stare at it for long enough.
From left to right, the colours go, land, beach, sea.
