Australia, with its seat in the Capital Territory (Federal District) of Canberra, is a democratic federal state government led by the Prime Minister of the nation's parliament. Its Head of State is the Governor General representing the reigning monarch. There are six states and two territories. It also maintains dependencies in Ashmore and Cartier Islands, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, Coral Sea Islands, Heard Island and McDonald Islands, Norfolk Island.

National Flag description:

The British blue ensign, charged with 5 stars formingthe Southern Cross and the 6th to represent the Commonwealth of Australia, was the design chosen in a competition in 1901, which attracted 30,000 entries. Subsequently there were some changes to the stars until thier shape and size and position were precisely specified on April, 15 1954. The 6 points of the Star of the Commonwealth represent the six states, and the seventh stands for the Northern terriritory and the 6 external territories of Australia.
