The Aboriginal flag is to have permanent status on Australia’s iconic landmark. The NSW government made the decision earlier this year after many years of campaigning by supporters.

The flag was created in 1971 by indigenous artist Harold Thomas and now has legal and political status together with the national flag. 

The flag is divided horizontally into equal halves of black (top) and red (bottom), with a yellow circle in the centre. The black symbolises Aboriginal people, with the yellow representing the sun. The red depicts the earth and peoples’ relationship to the land.
