I have a question for the Aussies. This may have been explained during TV coverage of the Sydney Olympics, but I missed it.
The Oz flag is red white and blue, with the Southern Cross, right? But at any sports event, the flag you wave is the gold 'roo on the green field... and Aussie uniforms are usually green and gold also.
History? Significance? An ignorant Yank would be interested in knowing. Thanks!
