The current Personal Standard for the Governor of New South Wales was adopted on 15 January 1981. It features a blue background with the Union Flag of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the upper left corner. On the right side is the State Badge of New South Wales comprised of a golden lion passant guardant with four eight-pointed golden stars within the cross of St. George, on a silver disc (reproduced as white), above this is the St Edward's Crown. The stars represent the Southern Cross and the golden lion and the St George Cross reflect the British heritage of the first European settlers. The St George Cross is also the traditional badge of the British Navy. The Governor’s Standard is flown at Government House and on vehicles conveying the Governor. When the Governor is absent from New South Wales, the Standard on the tower of Government House is lowered until the Governor’s return to the State.
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 are made in house in our workroom here is Sydney, and are finished with double stitched hems with UV stable header tape and UV stable recycled thread.
All flags unless specified otherwise are finished with sister clips, other finishes are available such as sleeves for poles, or loop and tail etc, if you require these please put the finish you would like in the notes when you view your cart.
