Editorial  An earlier version of this NSW flag design was given extensive coverage in the media courtesy of Ausflag.

The article above (Sydney Morning Herald, 22 November 1996, p.5.) launched the design, and it was followed up by a Saturday editorial endorsing a new flag for NSW (Sydney Morning Herald, 23 November 1996, p.44.).

Barracking for the Blues at North Sydney Oval, 26 October 1997. I hung the new NSW flag up on the fence at the southern end of the ground - and the flag got a good response! There was no mistaking which team this flag supported! NSW (9/275) defeated Victoria (238) by 37 runs in a fairly comfortable victory, despite Darren Berry giving NSW a scare by smashing 64 runs (not out) off only 39 balls towards the end.


And finally the earlier version of this flag design appears at the Ausflag web site "A new Flag for NSW".
