Little Aboriginal flag metal badge/pin
Measures approximately 1.5 x 1cm.
The Australian Aboriginal Flag was designed in 1971 by Aboriginal artist Harold Thomas. The flag was originally designed for the land rights movement, and it became a symbol of the Aboriginal people of Australia.
The symbolic meaning of the flag colours:
In January 2022 The Morrison government paid more than $20m to obtain the copyright to the flag, plus terminate commercial licenses owned by companies which had limited the reproduction of the symbol.
“In reaching this agreement to resolve the copyright issues, all Australians can freely display and use the flag to celebrate Indigenous culture,” Ken Wyatt, the federal minister for Indigenous Australians said.
“Now that the commonwealth holds the copyright, it belongs to everyone, and no one can take it away.”
Two badges ordered, great quality. Will wear regularly!
I can wear this pin everyday and acknowledge the First People's of this country.

I love this flag and I plan to come back to your shop very soon. Just waiting for a few items to be re-stocked. I’m so pleased I came across your shop. The service and despatch were excellent. I would highly recommend your shop. I have always read lots of books on our Ingienous people. I have a huge collection and I love my Aboriginal peoples. We are all Australians. Lorraine Graham
