     OUR FLAG 
Author Robin Northover 1986
Our flag bears the stars that blaze at night, in our southern sky of blue,
and the little old flag in the corner, that’s part of our heritage, too.
It’s for the English, the Scots and the Irish, who were sent to the ends of the earth,
The rogues and schemers, the doers and dreamers, who gave modern Australia birth.
And you who are shouting to change it, you don’t seem to understand,
It’s the flag of our law and our language, not the flag of a far away land.
There are plenty of people who’ll tell you, how when Europe was plunged into night,
That little old flag in the corner, was the symbol of freedom and light.
It doesn’t mean we owe allegiance, to a forgotten imperial dream.
We’ve the stars to show where we’re going and the old flag to show where we’ve been.
