The Australian Aboriginal Flag is a flag that represents Indigenous Australians. It was designed in 1971 by Aboriginal artist Harold Thomas, who is descended from the Luritjapeople of Central Australia and holds Intellectual propertyrights in the flag’s design. The flag was originally designed for the land rights movement, and it became a symbol of the Aboriginal people ofAustralia.

The symbolic meaning of the flag colours (as stated by Harold Thomas) is:

  • Black: Represents the Aboriginal people of Australia
  • Red: Represents the red earth, the red ochre and a spiritual relation to the land
  • Yellow: Represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector
