So why do we need a new Australian flag?
Australia's national flag, a defaced Blue Ensign we borrowed from Old Dart, is pretty embarrassing. All Aussies know that.
It's a symbol of colonisation that serves as a painful reminder to indigenous Australians of their suffering during those times.
Australia needs a new flag that embraces the nation's independent identity and unites all Aussies.
The "Australia" flag is awesome because it features our national colours, Green and Gold, and in big amazing letters it says the word "Australia" - really leaving no doubts as to who this flag represents. No Union Jack. It truly is a flag for every Vegemite-loving Aussie.
And there's a chance one day it will be Australia's new national flag (although it's pretty unlikely), so buy a flag and own a piece of history.
