Flag of Tasmania (GIF)


Tasmania is an Australian island state 240 km south of the Australian mainland. Its capital is Hobart, its population is about 532,000, and its area is 64,519 km². The flag of Tasmania consists of a defaced British Blue Ensign with a state badge on the right. The badge is a white disk with a red heraldic lion in the center. There is no official record of what the lion symbolizes, but it is assumed that the red lion is linked to England. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on September 25, 1876.
