Founded: 14 June 1825 (2nd colony)
Flag Proportion: 1:2
Proposed Use: State and Civil Flag
The flag of Tasmania incorporates the state's heraldic and unofficial colours. Its design is based upon the bicolour "Australian pale" used in the flags of the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory.

The Tasmanian heraldic colours of red and white form the bicolour. In the fly appears a simplified map of the island state in green, the state's unofficial colour. The map provides an unambiguous statement of pride in Tasmania, the green represents its natural heritage, and the white its unspoilt environment. The southern cross at the hoist represents Tasmania's status as an Australian state.

Green and red have also been informally adopted as the colours of representative sporting teams from Tasmania.
