What Does The Eureka Flag Represent?

The miners fight for their rights

The Eureka flag represents Australians fighting for their rights. It also symbolises both Australians and miners from other countries standing up to the government. The miners have to pay the government lots of money to dig for gold, and if they don't pay for their license, then they get punished. It's unfair if the miners don't find gold when they have paid lots of money for the license.

Symbols of the flag.

The five stars on the flag stands for the southern cross, which has always be on symbolic for Australians. The white crosses represent one challenge against unneeded authority (which means power over others).
