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.

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.
