Australia needs a new flag

“How Long will it take? How long do we wait? When we gonna get a new flag?” – exactly what Urthboy asks in his song “Empire Tags” on his most recent full album release “Smokey’s Haunt“, and it’s a question I can’t get out of my mind.

Urthy hits the nail on the head with the following lyric:

“From a time when the empire tagged the globe, We ain’t cleaned that graffiti off the front of our home”

Because that’s exactly what the Union Jack really is. The British supremacist gangs’ tag, emblazoned across the most prominent point of our national symbol; the ‘Australian’ flag.
