Age bin - Flag the issue

Australia has a flag that majority of Australians don't like, a head of state the majority of Australians want to get rid of, and a national anthem that the majority of Australians can't remember. All of these together provide some little protection against the cheap nationalism that deforms the public sphere in, for example, America, which fetishises its flag, its anthem, and its President. The only reason to change the flag would be that if it was violet with a design of forget-me-nots then yobbos might find it less satisfying to wear it as a cape while beating up immigrants.
