  That the Senate—

    (a)notes that the Prime Minister (Mr Keating) was upset at seeing the Australian flag being used at the announcement of Sydney's winning Olympic bid, as reported in the Australian of 27 September 1993;

    (b)seeks an explanation as to why Mr Keating is ashamed of the official flag of this nation, the nation that elected him to its highest position; and

    (c)reminds Mr Keating of the oath of allegiance he took when sworn in as Prime Minister, and that if he no longer wishes to abide by that oath then he should step aside for someone that does.
