[Tasmanian flag]
by Jorge Candeias See also:


It's my understanding that the lion on the Tasmanian flag was redrafted recently (a year or two ago). I can't remember where I heard this, but it may well have been on this list. However, when I was visiting my parents at Christmas time, I didn't see any of the new designs. Trust me, I looked carefully, and all the flags I saw had the old lion.

This could mean that manufacturers haven't caught up... or it could mean that they are still wearing out stocks of old flags. Or it could mean that the original information was wrong.

1875 flag

During some weeks in 1875, Tasmania used a blue ensign with a white cross and stars on it arranged in a southern cross.

State Governor

Tasmania State Governor used the defaced Union Flag. It changed to a defaced Blue Ensign 1977. I don't know what the ensign defacements are.

One of the ramifications of the 1986 act was that state governors ceased to fly undefaced Union Jacks, instead they flew new governor flags which were typically the state flag adorned with a Royal Crown above the badge.
