A new flag?

Much to the delight of all Australians on Thursday Sept. 23rd 1993 Sydney was chosen over Beijing to host the 2000 Summer Games. Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating, who had some budget difficulties, celebrates with wife Annita.

At the time the Australian flag design was also a topic for discussion as earlier on 28th April 1993 The Republican Advisory Committee (RAC) had been formed 'to prepare an options paper' on that isssue. The report was to be presented in October 1993.
