Some famous people about Australia… Если бы я позволил себе любое новшество, то это было бы преобразование названия континента в «Australia», так как оно и более приятное для уха, и сочетается с именами других великих частей света Had I permitted myself any innovation on the original term, it would have been to convert it to Australia; as being more agreeable to the ear, and an assimilation to the names of the other great portions of the earth. *** Джон Калландер сказал: Этот мир должен предоставить нам совершенно новые вещи, так как до сих пор у нас было настолько мало знаний о нём, как будто мы находимся на другой планете Оригинальный текст (англ.) This world must present us with many things entirely new, as hitherto we have had little more knowledge of it, than if it had lain in another planet. ***
Now, let me introduce, some information about history… Australia is the only country in the world that is also a continent.
But right now our attention turns to meaning of flag… blue color on the flag means the Ocean which surrounded Australia from all sides
Now it is going to be my pleasure to explain to you Six white stars on the flag
In the left upper quarter we can see Britain’s flag, because, Great Britain represented the Australian Union
In the right part of canton there are five Stars of Crux, and one star is big also called The Commonwealth Star under British flag.
And the things that comes particularly strongly are the Commonwealth Star (also known, as the Federation Star) is seven-pointed star symbolizing The Federation of Australia. Six points of the Star represent the six original states of the Commonwealth of Australia, while the seventh point represents the territories and any other future states of Australia. The original Star had only six points: however the proclamation in 1905 of the Territory of Papua led to the addition of the seventh point in 1909 to represent it and future territories.
Do you know, that…. In addition to the flag with the image of the Commonwealth Star, Australia has two official flags. Continental Aboriginal Flag Flag of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

It must be admitted that country has also its own anthem, which is also National Symbol Australians all let us rejoice, For we are young and free; We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil, Our home is girt by sea; Our land abounds in Nature’s gifts Of beauty rich and rare; In history’s page, let every stage Advance Australia fair! In joyful strains then let us sing, «Advance Australia fair!» Beneath our radiant southern Cross, We’ll toil with hearts and hands; To make this Commonwealth of ours Renowned of all the lands; For those who’ve come across the seas We’ve boundless plains to share; With courage let us all combine To advance Australia fair. In joyful strains then let us sing «Advance Australia fair!» National Anthem of Australia
