"It is inevitable that Australia will get a new flag. As our nation grows in global stature, becomes more cosmopolitan, and feels more and more left behind by first Canada, and now New Zealand, the move to a new national flag is only a matter of time.
The way ahead will be through a lot of public consultation and design input, just as happened in Canada and is happening in New Zealand. The outcome will be a flag that leaves no one in doubt that it is truly Australian. And while the race is not quite yet on, I believe the kangaroo is off to a flying start."
