I've taken the liberty of updating the article with a more thoroughly sourced version I've been chipping away at in userspace. I've got a few ideas on the future expansion of the article, listed below.
The sources I've used have been a little hazy on the British side of things, both in the inital decision to fly the British White, and in the leadup to the introduction of the Australian White. Particular things to find would be the hows and whys behind the British push to have the RAN fly the RN ensign, and the British reaction the "those damn Aussies flying Our flag" during the Vietnam War...was there any pressure to change coming from the UK?
The article could probably use a "Design" section indicating the layout of items on the flag, colours, etc. Something that would fall between a carbon copy of the "Construction" and "Colour" sections of the Flag of Australia article, and the one-line claim that its simply a colour-reversed national flag.
During the update, I removed a chunk of unsourced information relating to the practice of flying the ensign (added by an IP editor during these four edits). If if can be reliably sourced, it would make a great section.
Any help in accomplishing these (or generally improving the article) would be greatly appreciated. -- saberwyn 09:12, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
The difference between 'our flag' and 'theirs' didn't exist until as late as 1947-8 as all Australians were still British subjects until that date.
