Australian Red, Gold and Green. Red for the land, green for the bush and tropical waters, yellow for the sun. Green and gold for the wattle and national colours. Red and yellow incorporates colours from the Aboriginal flag. The curved band of yellow circles denotes the wattle flower, the timeless movement of the sun across the ancient continent, alluding also to recognisable aboriginal iconography. The Southern Cross connects us to our region and the current national flag. A warm, inclusive and fresh beginning for a future Republic of Australia.
