It's going to be very hard to change the national flag but it can be done, question is in what manner. To produce a flag u r proud of, easy to recreate and at same time respectable. Kangeroo is not bad but careful not to take Qantas thunder.

January 30, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterWhyChange

Thank you for your thoughts and feedback; they are greatly appreciated.
"...be careful not to take Qantas's thunder". I'm not sure what you mean by that? The kangaroo is currently used by many companies and the depiction on the Advance Australian Flag looks nothing like the Qantas logo. I hope your comment was not implying that Qantas should own the national symbol outright? Can you please elaborate? I fully agree with you that it's going to be very hard to change the national flag. Of course it will be a much quicker process after Australia eventually becomes a republic but unfortunately that appears to be well and truly on the back burner.
Reconciliation is the other important issue; the flag, the republic and reconciliation are all intertwined ingredients in forming Australia's national identity. As long as these issues remain unresolved then so will our national identity.

Thank you again
Russell

This flag is amazing, I've been trying to find information on it when I first "discovered" it a few weeks ago and now I found the site for it. I reckon this is the best solution for Australia's new flag and I love how versatile it is (with the state flags).

March 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLukman

The designer of this alternative Australian flag has confused flag design with graphic design. There is no need to make its design "instantly recognisable" through the use of cliched visual symbols. There is no croissant or Eiffel tower on the French flag - it is recognisably French through historical association.

Let's hope this unfortunate and unattractive design does not find support beyond this website.

May 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGeorge Phillips

I am not sure the flag fully captures the history of Australia. A flag is not equivalent to a logo. We do have a connection to both the indigenous people of this land and the British, can't ignore either. If it is going to be fully inclusive, it will have to also include a symbolic imprint to represent all the non-English migrants to this country as well. It is a lovely design, but reminds me more of a product/sports logo than a flag.

May 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJulie Cook

I'm not sure we need change? The kangaroo appears to be going left / backwards?
Although seeing its versatility in all the ensigns it does look graphically good.
However, I think all the various color schemes are confusing for an international audience!

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHayden

i am a supporter of recognition of aboriginal sovereignty and moving on from the colonial flag, but a new flag must still contain the federation star, as that is part of how we have evolved as a nation.

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterwave

Brilliant design and I think this is the flag that we as a nation need. The design is bold and is instantly identifiable as Australian which is what a flag should do. Some of the above comments are baffling and clearly have no understanding of visual communication.

@georgephillips I ask why shouldn't our flag be instantly recognisable? It is part of our brand and It's a banner that represents us a people... The current flag sends mixed signals and says that we are 'British" more than anything. Flag design is a type of graphic design so your comment does not make any sense.

@Hayden The state flags are more identifiable with the colour schemes... The current state flags are less iconic and all look pretty much the same and bare the union jack. How is that not confusing? They are not really targeted towards and international audience so it doesn't matter. I guess depending on what side you view the flying flag from will determine the direction of the Kangaroo.

The proposed new Australian flag breaks away from the old Australia and gives us our own identity. Well done!

February 12, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAdvanceAustralia

On the one hand there is the current flag that represents from where Australia comes, and constitutes a design centuries old and forged in fire and daring.
Then there is a new one created by committee like one finds for sporting clubs that could as easily be replaced every few years by whichever interest group is in power.
Just what I think.

April 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKeir

I believe it's time for Australia to have a new flag. This flag captures the nation's growing identity away from the old Australia and can be instantly recognizable...

And about the Kangaroo, yes it does serve on many company logos, sporting and is the nations most recognizable animal. It also serves on the Royal Australian Air Force Flag and Military equipment.
I feel this flag is only a few that captures Australia as a whole (including the Old Eureka Stockade Flag)

April 9, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterchris

I forgot it also has the southern Cross which represents the great southern land aka Australia...

April 9, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterchris

A brilliant design. For a corporate logo and flag, that is, not for a nation. And as for the "variations on a theme" idea for each state territory, sport flag etc, well, it smacks of corporate-Australia's obsession with sameness and bureaucratic blandness. Please start again. And retain the Christian crosses too, please.

I do favour this out of all the designs. It doesn't divide as it shows a image of a kangaroo, which is of the land our country and not a specific group of people. It is also very versitle.

November 3, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJason

Brilliant design.
Why don't you create a petition in change.org to start a debate to choose a new aussie flag ?

January 25, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterhernan

For me, the shape of the kangaroo is not quite right. The head and ears look more like a dinosaur than a Kangaroo, also the front breast/arm area is ambiguous, perhaps it needs more definition. My initial reaction though was 'Qantas logo' the shape and position of the Kangaroo is very similar. The Kangaroo needs to be more unique, like the excellent Australia Council logo, or even the Australian Tourism Kangaroo.

February 22, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterTony

I would be proud to see this flag flying. It could not be mistaken for anywhere else but Australia. Its simple, meaningful, conforms to vexilology ideals and is completely inclusive by not promoting or excluding any one group. The colours of sun and sky, land and sea, colonial and aboriginal just work but maybe the Kangaroo could be more abstract. The fact that it is adaptable to other uses such as states and reconciliation groups only enforces how effective the design is.

September 26, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterSH

Great concept but not sure about the kangaroo. Keep the southern cross and colours, just change the kangaroo to the federation star or some significant indigenous design.

December 11, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterMat

I was looking at your Advance Australia National Flag that you claim features a Kangaroo "in a forward moving, bounding motion when flying in the breeze". Nice design with the Kangaroo but with a flaw... Your kangaroo is not bounding into the wind but looking Back. He's not going forward as Australia is going.
