I designed a shoulder patch that has created quite a bit of interest among many of my friends and want to post an image of it here to get a reaction before having it produced. (Not really sure how to go about doing that but here's hoping.... )
The first design I did was simply two horizontal bands of black over red with a yellow disc featuring a red-bellied black snake surmounted by the words REPEL THE INTRUDER.
Whoops! Can't do that as it would be considered a defacement of the Aboriginal Flag, which being a Recognized Flag in Australia would make that illegal.
The second design was three horizontal stripes of black over white over red, but as my daughter pointed out that could be taken to mean the white man separating the Indigenous People from the land.
The final design is again three horizontal stripes but the centre stripe is grey and the patch has a yellow border.
Anyone care to comment?
Edited to add: Darn... The image didn't go through. Anybody know how to upload one here?
