0.75" Diameter Flag
The Australian flag adopted in 1936 features a dark blue field with the Union Jack in the upper left corner, symbolizing Australia's historical ties to the United Kingdom. Beneath the Union Jack, there is a large seven-pointed white star known as the Commonwealth Star, representing the federation of Australian states and territories. On the right half of the flag, there are five white stars arranged in the shape of the Southern Cross constellation, a distinctive feature of the southern hemisphere's night sky. This arrangement of stars has historical significance and serves as a navigational aid. The flag's deep blue background reflects the vastness of the Australian sky and oceans. This design, which has remained largely unchanged since 1936, captures both Australia's colonial history and its unique geographical position in the Southern Hemisphere.
