AUSTRALIA FLAGS AND BUNTING

The British blue ensign, charged with five stars forming the Southern Cross and a sixth sixth to represent the Commonwcalthof competition in 1901, which attracted Australia, was the design chosen in a 30,000 entries. Subsequently there were some changes to the stars until their shape, size and position were precisely specified on 15 April 1954. The six points of the Star of the Commonwealth represent the six states, and the seventh stands for the Australian Capital Territory, Northern Territory, and the eight external territories of the Ashmore and Cartier Islands Christmas Island; Cocos (Keeling) Islands; Coral Sea Islands; Jervis Bay; Norfolk Island; Australian Antartic Territory; and Heard and McDonald Islands
