Monday=Flag Day

Queens-Australia_flag

Now today I will tell you about the Queens Personal Flag for Australia, yeah I know you didn’t know she had a personal flag for Australia, well join the club I also didn’t know about it either.

Since the 1963 Royal Visit the Queen has used this flag when she is in Australia as a distinctive personal flag, rather than the Royal Standard used when she is in the United Kingdom.

The flag is a banner of the Australian Coat of Arms with a badge consisting of the Commonwealth Star upon which is the Queens Royal badge showing her initial surmounted by a crown and surrounded by a garland of roses and wattles. The Western Australian swan faces away from the hoist, the same as in the Coat of Arms.
