You Sydneysider Big Day Out types, yep, take the Aussie flag and drape it around yourself. You kids with parents who who born in South East Asia, drape it around yourself. You peoples with parents from the Middle East, you are Australian, your parents have the paperwork. Embrace Australia. Ah, you are a more recent immigrant and have an accent. No matter. You too have the paperwork in order. Drape yourself in the Aussie flag too. You are Aussie and proud to be so aren't you? Beat them at their own game.
For mine, flags are for sticking up on poles and not normally to be used as a sarong or scarf. I wonder if Kathy Freeman knew what the eventual effect would be of her running around a track draped in an Aboriginal flag. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
