The flag contains the Commonwealth star and the Southern Cross. The colours are selected and placed in an order that is significant. The blue, white, and red represents Great Britain, the first European nation to significantly colonize Australia. The red, gold, and black recalls the Aboriginal flag. The red line is larger that the white and gold since it represents "blood," more significantly the blood of all Australians which transcends race or ethnicity. It also meets in the middle of the meeting of European and Aboriginal--a common bond and the "lifeblood" of the Australian nation moving forward in the 21st century.

How could you update the Australian flag by changing it as little as possible? That is the logic behind this design. The idea is not to completely change the current flag but to upgrade by keeping most of its iconography and adding national symbology. This thinking could also result in less social and political friction in a debate to implement it. Simply replaced the Union Jack for the national colours –gold and green– while using one of its white stripes as reference.

This design is inspired in respect towards the Australian Aboriginal Flag. Red earth ground-Multi-cultural peoples atop that ground (which starts with First Peoples) all under the sun, the giver of life and protector. The colonial Southern Cross is replaced by a 'dot' version of that image. Recognition, Justice, Conciliation.

The Aboriginal symbol means "Meeting Place". Australia is the "Meeting Place" where all Australians can gather in unity under the Southern Cross.

With dimensions of the current flag of Australia, and the Southern Cross in the familiar place, the Union Jack is removed.
The Commonwealth Star is raised to the centre line and becomes yellow. Thus also representing the sun of the Australian Aboriginal flag.

The field is bars of four colours (green, black, red, blue) this incorporates all the colours of the current Australian flag, the Australian Aboriginal flag, and the Torres Strait Islander flag.
The multitude of colours represent the diversity and harmony of the peoples and cultures that make this nation what it is today.
