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.

Nautical Courtesy Flag Etiquette

Merchant ships are not legally bound to fly a courtesy flag when entering or leaving a foreign port. However, it is regarded as a sign of respect to do so which signifies that the vessel will adhere to the laws and sovereignty of the country.

We have many inquiries as to what size flag should be flown. The general rule is; one inch of fly for every two feet of vessel. Therefore, a 36-foot vessel would require an 18-inch flag.
