Artist's Description

This is an Official Australian Flag which very few Australians would ever have seen.

It is an historical flag designated specifically for an Australian River, and can only be flown on it.

It is the Murray River Flag – the only flag in the world named in honour of a river.

This flag dates from the 1850s and is flown by vessels on the upper reaches of the Murray River, predominantly in Victoria.

It consists of the British White Ensign, featuring the cross in red with five white stars (representing the then five colonies). The blue bars are said to represent the four major rivers that form the Murray-Darling River system.

Captured on the Murray River near Lock 11, Mildura, Vic/NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, as is.
