National Flag description: The British blue ensign, charged with 5 stars formingthe Southern Cross and the 6th to represent the Commonwealth of Australia, was the design chosen in a competition in 1901, which attracted 30,000 entries. Subsequently there were some changes to the stars until thier shape and size and position were precisely specified on April, 15 1954. The 6 points of the Star of the Commonwealth represent the six states, and the seventh stands for the Northern terriritory and the 6 external territories of Australia.
