The Red Ensign: The TRUE Australia's Flag
Iron Anglo-Celtic Symbol and a Battle-Standard to Rally to....

This is to become the battle-flag of Anglo-Celtic Australia should I have anything to say about it.
Underneath it we shall rally to fight, this was the flag of normal people before the Blue Ensign that is used today (which used to be for Government only) and would be a undeniable symbol of the real Anglo-Celtic Australia, before the time of the Multi-Kult arrived on these shores like a plague, and which seems to be in the process of twisting what my country's great flag (The current Blue Ensign the world is familiar with) represents...

The Red symbolizes well the blood of our folk here, and reminds me just how much of that blood we have spent in our short history. War forged Australia, and we seem still drenched in the blood of the memory of it, given the pervasive noble imagery of it (even though it is far in the background now). The Anzac Warrior mystique so powerful, that even the Liberalists haven't been able to dent it, so now they seem to be trying to harness it instead.

And a few of the Blue Ensign, which meant so much to us, yet whose meaning and history is being slowly, but surely perverted, and whose very existence is in the firing line of Multi-Kultists (A new flag and Republic are desired by the Multi-Kult) which is why I look to the Red Ensign now to anticipate this.

Good stuff, I knew Canada had a similar kind of flag, was this flag Canada's official flag at all? Or was it like a Naval or military flag in usage?

That was Canada's official flag until the wretched Liberals foisted that Maple Leaf thing on us. Actually, I think it still has official standing alongside the newer one.
BTW, any time an old WW2 vet dies they make damn sure there is a Union Jack on the casket. Those old timers fought under the Union Jack and conside it their flag even now. It is always present on Nov. 11, also.:beer-smil

The Red Ensign was different things at different times. It was considered our National Flag until February 15, 1965--when they officially raised the maple leaf and began dismantling the nation, it's history, and it's culture.

It had various military and merchant purposes starting in the 1860s but as far as I know the "official" flag was the Union Jack for most of that time; though most Canadian flew the Red Ensign. It seems to have varied over those hundred years which was official and which was permissable, both on land and at sea, but the Canadian Red Ensign was widely recognized as the true National Flag of Canada.

Here's a bit of the immediate official history:


The Red Ensign, a red flag with the Union Jack in the upper corner, was created in 1707 as the flag of the British Merchant Marine. From approximately 1870 to 1904, it was used on land and sea as Canada's flag, with the addition of a shield in the fly bearing the quartered arms of Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Although its use on land had never been sanctioned except by public usage, in 1892 the British admiralty approved the use of the Red Ensign for Canadian use at sea. This gave rise to the name the Canadian Red Ensign.

As new provinces entered Confederation, or when they received some mark of identification (sometimes taken from their seal), that mark was incorporated into the shield on the Canadian Red Ensign. By the turn of the century, the shield was made up of the coats of arms of the seven provinces then in Confederation.

In 1924, this unofficial version of the Canadian Red Ensign was changed by an Order in Council and the composite shield was replaced with the shield from the royal arms of Canada, more commonly known as the Canadian Coat of Arms. At the same time, this new version was approved for use on Canadian government buildings abroad. A similar order in 1945 authorized its use on federal buildings within Canada until a new national flag was adopted.

The Maple Leaf is a tool of culturerape.

Ha, you beat me to it, here's something else on the subject.


"The Canadian Red Ensign, is the former de facto national flag of the Dominion of Canada. In 1892, the Canadian Red Ensign was declared to be the official flag of Canadian merchant ships and other sea-bearing vessels. Despite its lack of official status the Canadian Red Ensign was seen as a Canadian Flag and was widely gaining acceptance as an alternate to the British Union Jack Flag. In 1924, the Parliament of Canada approved the Canadian Red Ensign for official use outside Canadian government buildings outside Canada. This was expanded in 1945 to include Government offices within Canada. Truly a Canadian idea to use it externally first!


The Canadian Red Ensign served until it was replaced in 1965 by the Canadian Maple Leaf. During its unofficial and official fly as Canada's flag, it bore several variations of the shield from the Canadian Coat of Arms. As new provinces joined Confederation the Canadian Shield was revised to reflect the additions. In 1957, it was decided to return to and sustain the original shield bearing the four founding provinces.

Two Canadian provinces, Ontario, and Manitoba introduced provincial flags which are Red Ensigns upon the introduction of the Maple Leaf as Canada's Official Flag. Many Canadians, especially those most loyal to Her Majesty the Queen of Canada still regard the Canadian Red Ensign as Canada's flag. There have been many a debate over a beer at local legions as to how to return the Canadian Red Ensign to it former splendor. Only in Canada, they say!"
