This LibGuide has been developed for the Huntingdon Spring 2012 Australia Seminar/Travel Experience led by Dr. Maureen K. Murphy and Prof. Eric A. Kidwell.
Adopted as the symbol
of Australian Aboriginal and Torres
people when it was first flown in 1971. It is a strident 3-colour flag composed
of a large central yellow circle imposed on a background of a red lower half
and a black upper half; the black represents the Aboriginal people, the yellow
the sun as a life force, the red the earth and the blood of the Aboriginal
people. It has no official government standing but is becoming widely
recognized and acknowledged by the community and is perhaps the only symbol
commonly accepted by the diversity of Aboriginal people.
