4BC Mornings: Do you buy Australian?

4BC Summer Afternoons: As Australia Day draws near again so too the debate heats up on whether we need to change our flag. Ausflag thinks we do, but the Australian Monarchist League says we don't.

Harold Scruby, executive director of Ausflag, and Tristan Rogers, Queensland chairman of the Australian Monarchist League, debate the issues for and against on Summer Afternoons with John Scott.

  • Like a child which has stepped out of its parents' arms, to define an identity for themselves independent of their heritage, it is time for Australia to renounce dependence upon the British for our identity and to look forward, shaping a new identity and purpose for ourselves. It is time to step out of our British parents' arms, and define who we are, who we want to be, and what we stand for. Our current flag bears the stamp of British colonial rule, but we are old enough now to step into the world as a mature, independent nation, and define our future as we like. Who are we now? We are our own nation, our own identity, our own independent people. Let our flag represent that.

  • To deny a new flag is to deny our Sovereign Independant status .

  • I'm all for a new flag but PLEASE don't wash it in Fluoridated water.

  • here comes labors divisions and diversions off the real issues that should be dealt with the flag works well and has done so for a long time. These morons here hammering on this are only following the Lying Scotsman's rubbish.

  • Absolutely it is time to have a flag that represents our country - not another. For those who bring out the chestnut of our Anzac fighting under the flag in fact they fought under the Union Jack and our flag until 1954 had a red background.
    It is appropriate that we have an international symbol of our uniqueness and a flag that we can be proud to fly. Have a look around and see how few Australian flags are displayed by our citizens.

  • Someone should tell the good people of Hawaii about the AOWF conspiracy theory.Multiracial Hawaii proudly sports the Union Flag in the top left hand corner of their State Flag. Maybe they also choose to honour their British heritage.
