About the Flag
"The top corner is the United Kingdom flag, and there are 5 seven-pointed stars, one of which is larger than the others, and one 5-pointed (the smallest) star. The reason why the flag of the United Kingdom at the top left corner of the flag is that Australia is a British colony.
Australia is one of today’s youngest countries, Australia’s flag, dates back to 1901, the country’s founding year. In Australia, the first day of 1901, a nationwide contest was held in order to reach this flag design in Australia, which became definite to leave the British Empire. The British Empire flag (Union Jack) and the Southern Cross were announced as a prerequisite and the prize was only 25 Australian Pounds.The competition lasted longer than expected, and the new Australian Flag was selected in April 1901. An interesting detail in this contest is that the same design was sent by four different people who were unaware of the competition, and one of these winners is a 14-year-old boy." (source: mappr)
