Flag colours

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Colours of Your Flag

There are two flags that I feel are representative of Australia. The first is the official flag that get flown around the country that shows the wonderful constellation, the Southern Cross and our historic ties to Great Britain. The second is the flag that recognises our First Nations people, which also gets flown on Government buildings and other locations.

So there is the Red, White and Blue

The Red Black and Yellow of the Indigenous Flag. The Aboriginal Flag is divided horizontally into equal halves of black (top) and red (bottom), with a yellow circle in the centre. The black symbolises Aboriginal people. The yellow represents the sun, the constant re-newer of life. Red depicts the earth and peoples’ relationship to the land.

  1. I didn’t know there was such a thing as an Aboriginal flag, Brian. Thanks for sharing all your great posts throughout the year.
    I have sunrise at Stonehengelive on my phone right now. Such a pretty morning there. I’m going upstairs to see how ours looks. God bless!

  2. Awesome photos! We have had horrible fires in California too, but definitely don’t have cute wallabies! I love that photo of you helping them. ❤️ Also, we have red robins here, so it’s interesting to see yellow ones. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks. I guess the rains, storms and snows of late won’t affect you either. I am always on the look out for the other Robins here but have to travel down south to get the real red ones. Have a great Christmas 🙂
