The main feature of my design is a minimalist 'A' for 'Australia' formed by an implied ribbon which is gold on one side and green on the other. The negative triangular space in the middle serves to further express the 'A' ribbon form.
The seven-pointed white star is placed in the top-left corner (the canton) and represents the five states and two territories that make up the Commonwealth of Australia.
Pantone 280 C is used to provide visual continuity between the current Australian flag and my design in where it symbolises the bodies of water that surround Australia. My design features the Australian national colours of green (Pantone 348 C) and gold (Pantone 116 C).
