To the honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

  The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth that:

  (1)  The majority of Australians are completely satisfied with the existing Australian national flag.

  (2)  We therefore request that the House of Representatives ensures that the Australian national flag, as provided in Section (3) of the Flags Act, is not changed or replaced without first being voted upon and approved by the majority of people in Australia and in a national poll.

  And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
