Australian flag stamp collage going down under ... to the tune of Waltzing Matilda
Folklore stamps issued in 1980
My Australian stamp collage flag is bound for Australia, as a canvas print, along with three other national flag canvases. I had great fun making this one using Australian stamps predominantly in shades of blue and red to replicate the flag, and enjoyed including a set of 5 22c stamps issued in 1980 featuring verses fromWaltzing Matilda. This famous song was written by the Australian poet Banjo Patterson and these stamps were designed by Richard Bates. You all know the words, so singl along!
