Western Australia, 1953

Western Australia, 1953

The flag of Western Australia is a British Blue Ensign defaced with the state badge, depicting the native Black Swan (cygnus atratus, native to Australia and the only non-white swan in the world) on a yellow disc. The black swan has long been a symbol of Western Australia: the original colony was in fact called the Swan River Settlement. It originally faced to the right, towards the fly and in 1953 this was reversed, so that when the flag is carried on a pole, it would face the same direction as the bearer.
