Fly Our Flag With Pride!

  Few Australians know the unique and proud story of our flag –the only national flag to fly over an entire continent, but also the first to be chosen in an open public competition. 

Following federation in 1901, the new Commonwealth government arranged a competition to choose a flag for the new nation, and entries were submitted from nearly 1% of the population at that time. Five people tied for the honour of designing the Australian flag - Annie Dorrington, Ivor Evans, Leslie Hawkins, Egbert Nuttall, and William Stevens.

The winning design was unveiled on 3 September, which has been officially proclaimed as Australian National Flag Day.


We’re all proud of our country and we can fly our flag to show it!
