澳洲國旗與國歌

澳洲國旗是藍船旗的變異:即藍色旗面,靠旗杆側上角有英國米字旗,靠旗杆側下部有一顆大型白色七角星——大英國協之星;其餘部分有四顆較大的白色七角星與一顆較小的白色五角星,代表的是太平洋上空的南十字星座。

這面旗幟是從一次設計比賽中,由英國君主在1904年選定的。最初這面旗幟主要用於海軍的軍旗,而米字旗才是更常用的國家象徵。1954年英國女王訪問澳洲時正式確定這面旗幟為澳洲的國旗,但直到1960年代,這面旗幟才完全取代米字旗,成為國家的象徵。


南澳大利亞州旗系基於藍船旗設計而成,但在旗幟右側增加了黃色圓形圖案,圓形圖案內有笛管伯勞圖案。現在的南澳大利亞州旗是在1904年制定並開始使用的。

澳大利亞土著旗代表澳大利亞土著。是澳大利亞官方旗幟之一,並擁有特殊的法律和政治地位。作為國家官方旗幟,它經常與澳大利亞國旗一起飄揚。

以上三支旗係南澳隨處可見,你地會好似本地人咁,大時大節把支旗係架車到嗎?


大多香港人對國歌的認識都不深,因小時就沒有學過。來到澳洲後想要了解這片土地,就試試由國歌開始接觸本地人的文化。小弟覺得歌詞表達出對土地及本土文化的尊重,我個人幾喜歡的。

Verse 1Verse 2
Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

除左國歌,這裡的學校都會成日教育小朋友澳洲係點來,所以亦成日聽到以下的一首歌,希望大家不分種族共融生活

I came from the dreamtime
From the dusty red soil plains
I am the ancient heart
The keeper of the flames
I Stood upon the rocky shore
I watched the tall ships come
For forty thousand years I’ve been the first Australian

I came upon the prison ship
Bound down by iron chains
I cleared the land
Endured the lash
And waited for the rains
I’m a settler
I’m a farmers wife
On a dry and barren run
A convict and a free man
I became Australian

I’m a daughter of a digger
Who sought the mother load
The girl became a woman
On the long and dusty road
I’m a child of the depression
I saw the good time come
I’m a bushy I’m a battler
I am Australian

We are one
But we are many
And from all the lands on earth we come
We’ll share a dream
And sing with one voice
I am, you are, we are Australian

I’m a teller of stories
I’m a singer of songs
I am Albert Namatjira
And I paint the ghostly gums
I’m Clancy on his horse
I’m Ned Kelly on the run
I’m the one who waltzed matilda
I am Australian

I’m the hot wind from the desert
I’m the black soil of the plains
I’m the mountains and the valleys
I’m the drought and flooding rains
I am the rock
I am the sky
The rivers when they run
The spirit of this great land
I am Australian

We are one
But we are many
And from all the lands on earth we come
We’ll share a dream
And sing with one voice
I am, you are, we are Australian

We are one
But we are many
And from all the lands on earth we come
We’ll share a dream
And sing with one voice
I am, you are, we are Australian
