Australia Day

Patri­o­tism is dif­fi­cult in a coun­try that can­not decide, even after a hun­dred years of con­sti­tu­tion­al gov­ern­ment, to break its ties to a for­eign monarch or to adopt a flag free of for­eign icons.

Third place win­ner in “Aus­Flag competition(link to Aus­flag com­pe­ti­tion site)”: for a new Aus­tralian flag

I like this design because it recalls three aspects of the Aus­tralian visu­al envi­ron­ment that I love: the south­ern sky, the sat­u­rat­ed col­ors of sky and land and the wide, flat horizon.
