Simple shapes and colors sewn together to become a sacred item and part of our collective identity.

It is the pride and passion of Aboriginal people that have created the value of this flag, not the artist. It is a true flag of the people.

Unless the flag is freed it will continue to lose this value and meaning, it will be an empty flag.

Clothing the Gaps is leading the #FreeTheFlag Campaign, we have been doing so since June 2019, when we received a cease and desist from WAM Clothing for producing some merchandise celebrating the Aboriginal flag. Clothing the Gaps started a petition called #PrideNotProfit and we have been campaigning to Free The Flag ever since.

See. Sign. Share our petition.

The Aboriginal flag is a symbol that has united all the Aboriginal nations. The flag represented the struggle and resistance movement, now it feels like a struggle to use it. 

Rock one of these tees to help raise awareness of the Aboriginal Flag copyright issue, start a conversation and take your stance.

- Unisex black made from 100% cotton.

- Embroidered  white flag outline on the front, 'Free The Flag' text embroidered on right sleeve and small Clothing The Gaps logo screen printed on the back of tee.

- Embroidered and screen printed on Wurundjeri Country in Melbourne.
