Is this a flag for all Australians?

EDWARD R Cattoni believes he has designed the perfect Australian flag - which he says is a flag for all Australians. 

Mr Cattoni says the design "says Australia simply with appropriate symbols and colours".

His design retains the current flag's blue background with white stars. Australia is surrounded by blue oceans plus white surf on our beaches and white heat of the outback.

In the upper hoist (canton) of the flag is the white seven pointed Federation Star that represents current states and territories.

On the fly are five white stars, representing the Southern Cross to signify that we are geographically located in the southern hemisphere.

Separating the canon and fly there is a stylised three coloured boomerang crossing both the top and bottom of the flag with the same width of narrowing yellow, green and white boomerang strips and pointing toward the Star of Federation.

The yellow represents Australia's golden beaches, golden wattle, deserts and wealth while the green represents the tropical rainforests and vast open grasslands. It also reinforces Green and Gold as our official sporting colours.

The final narrow white stripe provides a link to our current flag and also represents the white heat of the outback and white surf on our beaches.

What do you think of the design?
