Central Australia Heritage Flag - Flag for a Forlorn part of Australia

Form 1927 until 1931 the state of Central Australia existed for a short time on maps.  Here is a heritage flag that commemorates its small role in history.  This flag conserves the Native Australian colours of red, black and yellow, but also utilizes the Southern Cross in a new form and keeps the Aussie Blue upright and proud.

Central Australia was the proverbial Indiana Jones state, since it was created in between WWI and WWII.  It came to life during the Calvin Coolidge's term in the US and was around for the 1929 stock market crash, and disappeared during the Herbert Hoover's administration.
