I absolutely love seeing both of these flags flying; the one on the right is the Australian flag and the one on the left is the Australian Aboriginal Flag.
"The Australian Aboriginal Flag was first raised on 12 July 1971 at Victoria Square in Adelaide (which is this flag here)...The top half of the flag is black to symbolise Indigenous people. The red in the lower half stands for the earth and the colour of ochre, which has ceremonial significance. The circle of yellow in the centre of the flag represents the sun."
I feel it is an honor to see the Aboriginal Flag, I could get all carried away about the social injustices and make recommendations or formulate hypothesis, but I'll save this for my academic papers. This is an area which I am extremely passionate about and who knows where this passion is leading me to, but the journey is worth the thousands of miles.
