Why Different Coloured Australian Flags
People were confused about the use of two Australian flags. The blue ensign flag was meant to be for official and naval purposes and the red ensign was meant to be used by the merchant fleet, but the general public began using the red ensign flag on land. On both ensigns, the stars of the Southern Cross were simplified to four seven-pointed stars and one five-pointed star. In 1908 a seventh point was added to the Commonwealth star to represent the Australian territories.
