The flag of Australia features a Union Jack in the upper left quadrant of the deep blue ground.

The remainder of the flag body depicts the seven-pointed star of federation in the lower left quadrant, and the Southern Cross constellation fills the blue field in the right portion of the flag. The Southern Cross is significant because it can be seen from all states in the federation.

Remembrance Days - April 25 and November 11

ANZAC Day is a solemn day of honor and remembrance of Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

It was established in 1916 to commemorate the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

Veterans Day / November 11 observances in Australia and New Zealand are similar to Memorial Day and Veterans Day in the USA, and to the Remembrance Day national solemn holidays in Canada and Europe.

Remembrance Day Poppies posterRed poppies are a significant symbol to honor war dead on Remembrance Day in Australia, just as they are in the USA, Canada and Europe; some people also wear a sprig of rosemary in remembrance of those who died.

In Australia, a minute's silence is one of the most important parts of Remembrance Day commemoration ceremonies. Australia and New Zealand observe Anzac Day, a special day of remembrance, each April 25th as well.

Australians maintain one minute's silence at 11 a.m. on 11 November to remember when the guns went silent in 1918 at the end of WWI, and to honor the men and women who have died in all wars and conflicts.
