Kangaroos and First Nation Peoples Flags
 
GREAT NEWS!! The ABORIGINAL (First Nations People) FLAG is now freely available for use by the general public. I trust that Qantas (and others), an Australian airline, in the Spirit of Australia will paint the Aboriginal Flag on it's aircraft as matter or priority. Wouldn't it be great for the flag to be seen at airports around the nation and the globe.

Itís too political, executives are not getting involved in the subject at the moment itís career suicide. It will be a PR disaster either way. You slap on the aboriginal flag, and they will want the Aussie flag removed. Then the uproar from the 97%.

Its a decisive flag (well at the moment) and the majority of the public want nothing to do with it. QF has enough on its plate for the foreseeable future let alone dealing with public fallouts from this.

This isn't political, this is about being able to display your country's flag? What do you mean by the "Aussie flag" and who are you referring to when you write "they"?

Indigenous Australians are burning the Aussie flag in the streets today. Thatís who they are.

Dual flag? I think most Australians wouldnít be fazed by a dual flag on the Jet. However itís clear Indigenous Australians want one flag and one only.




What do you mean by the "Aussie flag"
The Aussie flag that sits on each QF jet alongside the rego.

So the indigenous Australians are burning the flags that are alongside the rego on each QF jet? Without knowing your ethnicity or your knowledge on the true history of the English occupation of Australia however, with respect, your comments could be taken as insidiously racist.

QANTAS might like to consider going for something like SAA did, with different markings on either side of their aircraft....

Isn't that apartside?

ISTR that back in the 70s, BA and SQ flew Concorde between London and Singapore with BA paint job on one side and SQ on the other.

Although this is your forum, it's read by people around the world who may not be familiar with the details of Aussie controvesries. Would someone care to explain what this is all about?

Hasn't the so-called "Aboriginal Flag" been freely available tor years, or did something just change? Isn't the "Australian National Flag" - you know, the one with the flag of those nasty Poms in the corner - still, well, the national flag? If the "Aboriginal Flag" should be on Qantas aircraft, shouldn't the Torres Strait Islander Flag be there too?

Granted, it would be great for both (or all three) flags to be seen around the globe.

Mr Proach, rather than pontificate here on this issue (& make BS accusations on racism) why don’t you write to Alan Joyce yourself if you feel that strongly about it!

ps it’s APARTHEID not APARTSIDE - do a bit of research if you don’t know - otherwise you come across as someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about…

pps & $20 million to use the flag was a bargain too wasn’t it, said no one.

Covid also crossed the Tasman

Abel Tasman never had the dreaded COVID, but I do hear he crossed the Tasman, or,......wait for it......he would have been 'Unable' ?? .......

As well as the Aboriginal and Australian National flags, maybe we need a Humour/Sarcasm flag too to make it stand out a bit moreÖ😉on the otherside and all

What do you mean by ďyour countryís flagĒ as far as Iím aware the countyís national flag is freely displayed and proudly flown on aircraft, buildings and even ships.

it was political and about money! Ask the designer himself who pocketed a cool 20mil of our tax payer money.

Anyway itís good for anyone that want to use it now if they so wish as they will be able to without persecution.

"this is about being able to display your country's flag?"
I thought this was our Nation's national flag, representing all Australians?

And for those who think we should feature the Aboriginal flag on our international airline aircraft, what about this flag which also officially represents an Australian indigenous people:

Neither first nation flag, nor the State flags would be recongisable at the international destinations serviced by Qantas and other Australian airlines.

We are one Nation. Internationally we should be recognized under one flag, the Australian Flag.

All that flag says is that we are still part of the UK, the big Jack in the corner says we are still a British dominion to most other countries. Time for a change.
