Australian Flag

It seems I missed a great moment in Australian culture. Jerry Seinfeld recently came to our shores and summed up our monarchist situation: “I love your flag. Great Britain at night”.This was a memory c/- Peter Fitzsimmons at the Press Club.

Fitz has maintained the efforts towards Oz becoming a republic. Obviously, Tony Abbott considers himself an English Australian and we could hardly expect the coalition to make any great effort in that direction.

The recent effort in NZ to design a new flag is provoking a local, regional momentum towards republicanism. As a kiwi joker put it: when we invade Australia, we’ll need to clearly differentiate ourselves”.
