Happy Australia Day

Happy Australia Day to our cousins across the Tasman! Gotta hand it to them: No one does a national day quite like the Australians. Oh, and have I mentioned that their national anthem has my favourite line of any country's? "Our home is girthed by sea." How you can go past a line like that?!

But because a blog post like this should have SOME substance, here’s a blog post I prepared earlier.

has there been a move, as there has in NZ, to change the flag in Oz?

Yes, but usually in association with becoming a republic. Some in NZ hope Oz changes its flag so NZ "doesn't have to".
