Flags, Aussie and Eureka.

After the Australia Day flag uproar, I thought I'd post up a pic of what people see when I open my garage doors. I also have a set hanging in the back garage. I'll say again what I said a few weeks ago, I don't give a rats what people think. Anybody else have their flags flying?

Comments

Don't know where i read it but snowflakes were getting there Southern Cross tatts lasered off ......PC correctness gone nuts , so i went out and bought a S C sticker and stuck it on the back window of the ute .....just as ridiculous as the yanks banning the Confederate flag.....and destroying there statues of Confederate Army soldiers.....

Yeah, I see the SC stickers on a lot of utes. I know when I see them the owner is a patriotic Aussie.

I'm the one who posted about political correctness gone wrong with the removal of the confederate flag on the dukes of hazzard car. I have ancestors who fought and died in both world wars and Vietnam. I've marched on ANZAC Day
We have an Aussie flag flying proudly from our verandah. I love our flag and dont want to see it changed EVER.
My ONLY problem is the ever money hungry Chinese who only love the dollar and have NO respect for our flag and only see it as an opportunity to make a quick buck off the backs of proud Aussies who don't know better.
No offence intended. You are preaching to the converted.

You don't need to explain yourself buddy. My picture was not to poke fun at you, and I know you are patriotic. I understand what you meant with your post at the time. The Aussie flag I got from the Aussie maker who Old is Good put up. The Eureka is no doubt Chinese made and the quality compared to the Aussie flag is chalk and cheese. I fly the Eureka due to being a staunch unionist and bike rider. Bryan knows what union I belong too. Giving NSW government a bit of trouble at the moment we are.

Mate, don't wish them gone. Missus is having a hard time with them gone. Mate, if they want to move in here I would love it. My wifey is having a hard time with the daughters gone. I don't have riding time because I have to go shopping with her.

I was saying it tongue in cheek. It is good to have the eldest daughter move back home, although its a package deal. I also get her fiance and 2 dogs, 2 cars and fiances massive van come bus, when parking is at a premium at my joint.
We did up the back part of the house as a granny flat for them so they can stop paying rent and save for a house.

Hardly any private Australian flags around my way...a couple of Aboriginal and one or two rainbow flags that catch my attention and some guy who flies a Spanish flag from his Japanese car...not sure what that all says...

Hey Bryan, that's the front garage. Should see the back garage/workshop.
Hey Al, Monaro is living with the Harley in another garage. Monaro is trying to Australianise the Harley. Can't show you where they live or I'd have to kill ya. LOL

I think everything is made in China now ?
The flag debate gets up my nose, having served in the ADF for 11 years. To me those who wear it,fly it at any age have my respect.
and what "rely " gets up my nose about the flag issue !!!!!
my unit and myself, MADE SURE "31" Australians came home with THIS FLAG over there caskets .
OH and i dont have a "cheep arse flag"
I have a full length "Eureka stockade flag across the back seat.
Yes there made in china to
As long as its an "Australian Flag" i dont care were its made, I think I deserve the right to fly it.
would you agree ???????????

You have more of a right to fly it because of what you have done, been through and seen. I recently trained a bloke at work for a week and he came from the special forces. He left that life a number of years ago and it was evident to me he still struggled with life. Nice bloke, didn't say much about his time in the services but from talking to him and watching him, every day was a challenge.

Put up a proper pole and flag last year. Love it. Yanks are a patriotic nation, most houses have flags there. Should be the same here. Nice work Keith. I'm a first gen Aussie so I'm not sure I'm entitled to fly the Stockade flag.

putting up a flag pole is not even allowed every where in Australia. My old Dad who is ex WW2 veteran, was the Australian National Flag association secretery for about 29 years. He had a flag pole in his front yard, as per the special specs etc of course LOL and he was written to by the Brisbane City Council to remove it????? He did take it down under protest, the pole is still in his yard he is 90 next month and still really cranky with the council about it. Some one I guess did not like it, he lives on a main road so lots would have seen it??? our current along with many past PM's are against the flag and all it stands for, most in parliament are chasing a republic so then we also lose the flag we currently have. Gillard stated she was agnostic and was a republic supporter and yet she swore her oath on the Bible and took her financial rewards...continuing even today from the parliament that works on teh Westminster system? As far as I am concerned most in the top 'jobs' ar dogs and would never have had an old Holden to cruise around in. LOL Stay cool every one.

I've got a similar story, my old man was in the ARMY (Officer in the MP's). He was rather fanatical about the History of the Eureka Stockade. Had many books on the subject and even had some of his own peices published in local rags and car club magazines. No Chink flag for him, he got mum (who was pretty handy with a needle and thread) to make one. He even studied the proper dimensions/specs for the flagpole and erected It. The council ordered him to pull the flag and pole down, which didn't sit to well with him. So he gave the pen pusher and anyone else in Council who dare challenge him a gobfull. Needless to say... the flag still flies proud even though he's now departed, and those same Council knobs still have to drive past and see it

and left the flag pole there mate, my old man had to remove his also because he was the secretary of the association, so had to be seen to do the 'right' thing by the law.

Oh what an intolerant society we live in now - only takes one person to complain, and out it goes. How can flying a flag be against the law, or bylaw? The world's getting all twisted up like a pretzel.

We needed a new tonneau cover the work ute & I had an idea to make one with the Aussie Flag on it.
I knew my boss would poo poo the idea so I just made it without asking him, with pay & on his time.
How many Aussie Flags can we buy these day's that made here?
