Ken Done weighs in on the debate about a new Australian flag design.

In a recent article on the DIA website about a proposed new design for the Australian flag, DIA member Russell Kennedy suggested that a new flag design may stand the best chance of being accepted if it was based mainly on the stars of the Southern Cross because ‘it features an established, pre-existing image.’

Ken Done, noted Australian artist, designer and DIA Hall of Fame member, has also been closely involved with designs for a possible new Australian flag for many years.
