Governors of Queensland have flown this Personal Standard since 1876. The Standard comprises a Union Jack with a white roundel in the centre featuring the Badge of the State of Queensland, a light blue Maltese Cross, surmounted by a Royal Crown and surrounded by a garland of laurel leaves. If the Standard is flying at Government House, on a vehicle or at an event (for example a country show or a sporting fixture), this indicates that the Governor is present. The general design of Standards for British Governors was approved by Queen Victoria in 1869. The design for Governors of Queensland was created in 1876, when the Maltese Cross was adopted as the State Badge.
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.
