Haha. True, i did not know that but isnt the big star on the current flag one of them? Which star is that? Theres 6 stars right? 5 in the cross and the big one which i assumed was a pointer.

Ive got to admit i have no idea really, just guessing.

The big star underneath the Union Jack is called the Commonwealth Star and isn't from a constellation at all. Each of it's points is meant to represent an Australian State/territory.

7 points of star = 6 states + combined territories.

The other 5 stars on the right form the Southern Cross.

Republican Socialist League 1956- remove the Union Jack and replace with the Commonwealth Star.

I think it's important to keep the flag recognisable. Those green and gold flags look gaudy and cheap. I'd never vote for one like that.

Both these flags look terrible.
