Australian Aboriginal Flag Drink Bottle - Stainless Steel

The symbolic meaning of the Aboriginal Flag:

Black represents the Aboriginal people, past present and future.
Yellow represents yellow ochre and the Sun, the giver of life and protector
Red represents the red earth, Aboriginal spiritual relationship to the land and red ochre used in ceremonies.

The Australian Aboriginal Flag was designed by artist Harold Thomas and first flown at Victoria Square in Adelaide, South Australia, on National Aborigines Day, 12 July 1971. It became the official flag for the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra after it was flown there in 1972. Since then, it has become a widely recognised symbol of the unity and identity of Aboriginal People. In view of the flag's wide acceptance and importance in Australian society, the commonwealth took steps in 1994 to give the flag legal recognition. After a period of public consultation, in July 1995 the Aboriginal flag was proclaimed a 'Flag of Australia' under the Flags Act of 1953. In 1997 the Federal Court recognised Harold Thomas as the author of the flag.
