In the canton sits the seven-pointed Federation Star of Australia. The background of the flag is a dark blue for the oceans that surround the continent and the inky dark skies of its interior. In the top center is the familiar Southern Cross in the Australian style.
Below the orange fragment of a circle to remind of Uluru and a nod to its Aboriginal people and their flag, but in the color of an earthy orange to represent the colors of the continent, especially the vast interior. A white fimbriation as a fragile border reminds of the precious ecological balance and niche of the continent, and of Australia's desire for peace with other nations.
