The Unity Flag

It's time for a flag for all Australians

The Unity Flag is new symbol to represent the inclusive, diverse Australia we all love.

A flag for all of us

We're a country forged by pioneers. From the first Australians arriving sixty thousand years ago, to our newest citizens arriving from across the globe, we all call Australia home.

The colonial flag represents less and less of the true breadth and diversity of the Australian community, and the character of our nation.

We're stronger because of our diversity, not in spite of it. We're united not by a common ancestry, but a common home.

Now, more than ever, it's time for a flag that represents all Australians.

The Unity Flag

The Unity Flag is an eight-pointed white star, centre left, on a dark blue rectangular field. A golden chevron points to the right, with two white triangles and the right corners of the flag.

Drawn from our origins

Its elements feel familiar, drawing on historic symbols. Honouring the flag of the last century, and introducing a chevron, a golden boomerang, pointing to a brighter dawn.

A federation star on our starry blue night, to reflect our rich history. A golden chevron / boomerang points towards the fly. In the corners, bright light to symbolise the daybreak, our future.

First Australians first

Federation brought the states of Australia together, but it was a process that left out Australia's first peoples.

Adding a first point for First Australians, we continue our progress to a united Australia, and recognise the worlds oldest continuous culture, like we should in our Parliament.

A federation star of eight points, one for First Australians, one for Australian Territories, and one to represent the Six States of Australia.

The eight pointed star

Fifty years before our seven pointed star, the eight pointed star became one of our oldest symbols of Australian democracy and Australian independence.

The flag in action

The Unity Flag is a recognisable symbol seen across a stadium and stitched onto our bags. It provides a strong set of colours, and a graphic style that becomes uniquely Australian.
