To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

1.The majority of Australians are completely satisfied with the existing Australian national flag and condemns the attack on the Australian flag by the Prime Minister Mr Keating while he was overseas.

2.We therefore request that the Senate 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 people of Australia in a referendum.

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