That Most Beautiful Flag Print E-mail
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Friday, 23 April 2010

It is 'a most beautiful flag' declared the Labor Leader Dr H. V. Evatt QC KStJ.  He was the  first President of the UN General Assembly, a former High Court Justice and author of the authoritative book on the vice regal office, The King and His Dominion Governors. (This should be compulsory reading for everyone who thinks we should become a politicians’ republic.)

                    Image

 “It is probably the most beautiful flag in the world,”  he continued, indicating Labor’s  support for the Flag Bill 1953. This had been  introduced by the Menzies Coalition government.   The speech may be found on the excellent site of the Australian National Flag Association.

Having passed both Houses without any dissent, the Bill was signed into law in Canberra by Her Majesty, The Queen of Australia, Queen Elizabeth II.

...yet another myth about our Flag... 




  

Just one of many myths pushed by the Flag changers is that our Flag is too similar to that of our sister ANZAC Realm, New Zealand. There are three significant differences. Just go to the excellent website created by Nick Hobson DFC AFC,  Australian Republic Unplugged.   

 Click on Flags and when the menu comes down, click on  The ANZAC Flags.


The three differences between our two Flags will be explained and illustrated.

As for being confused, I have always thought how confusing all those tricolour and multi stripe flags are, and also, just how plain they are.

Nick Hobson now offers  everyone - including all of those  flag changers - the opportunity to  test how distinctive other nations’ flags are.

On the same page just click on Flag Tests.

Image

There are three tests. Each shows six or seven flags.  There is a photograph of the third test below. You have to name each flag. Then you click on the Answers icon.

It's easy and its fun. It's also embarassing for the Flag changers. They have been well and truly exposed with their ridiculous myth that the Australian Flag is not distinctive. 

Incidentally, I would be astounded if anyone knows all nineteen flags.
