    It's interesting how this is okay, yet the swastika makes people lose their minds, even though five times as many people were butchered under this abomination.

    NB. IMO both as repugnant as the other

    What's wrong with the colour green, it is psychologically peaceful, represents growth and new life. Grey is made up from the three primary colors so that's my choice, something for everyone.

    Bt why do we need a flag at all. Bloody celebrations and memorials to the dead and gone, what a waste in these times of need.

    It's the particular shade of green that worries me, i.e. watermelon.

    OK, grey it is then,

    built on the solidarity of Red, Blue and Yellow.

    And of course the grey also aligns well with the arsenic that was used to clear the land in the 1800s of our indigenous ancestors, regarded as a pest to progress in fact.

    Green is good for the Eyes. It relaxes them or something.
    Take time out to enjoy the beauty of nature- its good for you.

    I quite like this one, except the stars should be centered.

    I like the current flag.

    I would only support a new flag if we became a functioning republic (not the toxic Clayton's republic Turnbull et al tried to screw us with in the "referendum"

    I think it's called the sheer hypocrisy if the Left.

    How many country flags are red, wite and blue?

    How many flags have stars on them?

    I am a big fan of the Canadian Maple Leaf flag. Instantly recognisable and can't be confused with any other nation. Something incorporating a kangaroo would get my vote.

    The Swastika is used by various groups like the Skinheads to represent a master race and racial intolerance. The hammer and sickle just represents a political ideology.



    The coat of arms on green and/or gold background imo.

    tend to agree with sir Rumpole..Maybe replace that part with the aboriginal flag?
    Just sad the aboriginal one is now a symbol of division and not unity, and this idea would be used as the next step toward the " first citizens" vs the low ranked ones and so could not have my final support
    but that is the tribalism the Left enjoy so much at play
