Description of the flag

W. Smith says that Western Australia uses more then one variation of the flag, but shows only one: a 'blue duster' with black swan in yellow disk, but they are just different artistic renditions of the black swan.
Brendan Jones, 19 March 1996

State Governor

Western Australia State Governor used the defaced Union Flag. It changed to a defaced Blue Ensign in 1988. I don't know what the ensign defacements are.
David Prothero, 24 February 1997

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.
Brendan Jones, 7 February 1996

Successionist Flag of the 1930s

This flag came about by a campaign lead by The Dominion League and a successful referendum in Western Australia (April 1933) for the State to leave the Commonwealth of Australia and return to Britain as a directly governed territory. Despite the success of the referendum, the W.A. government of the day never enacted the result because neither King George V or his government were interested in reaquiring this former colony. The design consists of a Black Swan (facing the fly) on a Yellow Disc surrounded with a Black Ring, all centred on a British Union Flag.
