The flag of the Anglican Church of Australia is quite commonly flown by some Anglican churches, at least it is here in Brisbane. One flies out the front of St Martin's House next to St John's Cathedral in Brisbane. The flag reflects the Church's ties with the Church of England, using St George's cross and the blue field of St Andrew, while the stars add an Australian dimension. The gold design in the middle is a representation of the mitre worn by the bishops.
