Australians struggle to recognise State flags

Nearly one in two Australian adults cannot identify their State or Territory flag, according to new survey results released by The Australia Institute. The Australia Institute’s Deputy Director Josh Fear said the survey results add an extra dimension to the recent push by Former Australians of the Year to change the national flag. While 52 per cent of survey respondents correctly identified the relevant flag, 48 per cent chose the wrong flag or were unable to answer the question.
