Australian and Proud

This is our country
this is our flag
Fly it high and fly it proud.

No matter when or where I may roam
I’ll always love my Island home
From the rugged coast and sandy shores
to the vast outback, and sweeping plains
and the beautiful Blue Mountain range
This amazing land is just the most,

Crikey mate I love to boast
When it comes to
the Land Down Under that I love most.

This is a piece of writhing that i put together fairly quickly for our work newsletter this week. I was even more inspired to write something to show how proud I was of my flag and country, after a couple of people at work had the cheek to complain about some of us having a small Aussie flag standing on our computers in celebration of Australia Day. Not only did they complain they requested that management have them removed, because in there eyes it was offensive and racist to them. But dam them I am Aussie and proud of it. Personaly I think there request was offensive to us. After all it was just part of an Australia Day theme for a few days.

    yeah!! and wow it bugs me too when here we are in beautiful Melbourne and people have the audacity to complain about the Aussie flag. It gets tiring trying to be PC and accommodate everyone yet be told we can’t fly our own nations symbols! My local council have taken to flying the Australian and Indigenous flags at the council offices and I say good on them.

    great poem, more Aussie patriotism needed!! :-)

    That is just so perfect and so how I feel, about the Flag and all, spot on mate!!! Keep our flag flying high, show your patriotism or our country is in trouble…welcome to Australia! You’re Standing In It… I would love to use this poem further for just this group if I may please, I’d like to add it to the Home Page as an intro to what our group stands for, just the poem. :o)

  • Yes You are very welcome to use it. It would be an honour.
    Thank you
