Well after the thread by rynamo-dynamo about his dinner I got to thinking.. With the whole 20 20 summit and the apparent proposal of Australia becoming a republic, I was wondering if we were to become a republic how many of you would support the idea of the Eureka flag becoming our national flag?

EDIT: Ok... Fixed it up...

I see no reason to leave the commonwealth. They are not impeding on us in any way, and with Australia's culture going up in smokes with the ridiculous amounts of forgeigners (I'm not saying ship them away) we need to hold on to what our culture has been for 300 odd years.

If someone can give three worth while reasons for a change, then sure, why not.
No point in becoming independent just for the hell of it...
Too much stuff to change, stuff costs money, money that could be better spent on important things that affect our day to day lives.

Eugh, that flag's horrible.
We should at least have one native animal (i.e Queensland's bikini girls) on our flag.
#13
why not keep the flag u have, but minus the union jack...put something else in the corner, like a pair of handcuffs or something...

Just like the millions of dollars spent for the Olympic torch to pass through Canberra lol... It's sad isn't it? To think the money could have gone towards something constructive..

hurr?

edit: that flag is pretty ugly. Before I put my glasses on I thought it was a ripoff of the Scottish flag.

I'm sure australia has one of the strictest immigration policies of any first world country.

3 reasons to change:
1. As a Commonwealth, we're technically still Britain's bitch.
2. Why should we be run by a monarchy that's at the other side of the world?
3. We get to decide the head of state if the country adopts a similar system like the U.S where we vote on a president.

P.S. I'd pick either the Eureka flag or get something new.

It was a pretty stupid rebellion that had no chance of working, but the flag is cooler than our current one. Except they did say every time in the past if we become a republic we arnt changing the flag.
