Flag of Australia (GIF)



The flag of Australia is a defaced Blue Ensign: a blue field with the Union Jack in the canton and a large white seven-pointed star known as the Commonwealth Star in the lower hoist quarter. The fly side contains a representation of the Southern Cross constellation, made up of five white stars. The large seven-pointed white star represents the Australian states and territories. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on February 23, 1908.

In addition, its coat of arms includes the kangaroo and emu, two of the native animals of the country, a shield showing the coats of arms of the six states of Australia, a seven-pointed star representing the states and regions of the country, and various flower figures.

The Australia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
