Her Majesty The Queen’s Personal Flag For Australia
On 20th September, 1962, Her Majesty the Queen gave her personal approval for the design of a personal flag for her use when in Australia.
Since the 1963 Royal Visit of Australia, HM Queen Elizabeth II has used in Australia a distinctive personal flag, rather than the Royal Standard used when she is in the United Kingdom.
The flag is a banner of the Australian Coat of Arms with a badge consisting of the Commonwealth Star upon which is the Queen’s Royal badge showing her initial surmounted by a crown and surrounded by a garland of roses and wattle.
Note that the Western Australian swan faces away from the hoist, the same as in the Coat of Arms. The correct proportions are 31:22, note the 2:1 proportions are used for other British Royal Standards.
