Western Australia

Flag Proportion: 1:2
Proposed Use: State and Civil Flag

This flag draws from the design of the Northern Territory and ACT flags, and brings together elements of existing state symbols on one flag. The black swan on a gold field, the state emblem as seen on the current flag, occupies the fly. The Southern Cross appears at the hoist signifying Western Australia's status as a state of Australia.

The vertical, wavy, blue and white stripes are taken from the state's coat of arms on which they are displayed horizontally. They acknowledge Western Australia's foundation as the Swan River colony. The overall design gives a representation of Western Australia's golden sands bound to the west by the Indian Ocean.
