To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in the Parliament ( Canberra) assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned showeth:

That the present Flag symbolises Australia's continuity of the past, the present and the future; we therefore request no change be made to endanger the heritage it represents.

Your petitioners humbly pray that no change be made to the Australian Flag except with the consent of the people in a referendum. And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
