The Australian Aboriginal Flag was designed by Harold Thomas in 1971 and adopted in 1995 and is a horizontal bi-colour flag of black and red with a yellow disc in the centre. The symbolic meaning of the flag colours as stated by Harold Thomas is that the black represents the Aboriginal people of Australia, the yellow circle represents the sun, the giver of life and protector, and the red represents the red earth, the red ochre used in ceremonies and Aboriginal peoples' spiritual relation to the land.
Fully sewn flags are made with poly woven fabric, which is also referred to as woven "bunting", they are appliquéd, using layers of fabric and custom stitching to make the artwork. Long-lasting, durable, as well as the most elegant and undoubtedly a keepsake item. These are made using the traditional methods of flag making.
Printed on a poly woven fabric similar to the fully sewn flags just a less denier for the ink to penetrate through the fabric, this makes them suitable for indoor and outdoor use, this is the most durable and traditional of the printed flags. These are either screen printed or digitally printed.
Digitally printed can be printed on a lightweight satin or a poly knitted fabric, a cost-effective option.
All flags unless specified otherwise are finished with loops either end.
