The flag of Queensland was originally created as a colonial flag. It is made up of a British Blue Ensign with the state’s badge in the field. The badge is a blue Maltese Cross with the St. Edward’s Crown superimposed over it, representing the Governors position as the queens representative.

The first variation of this flag used a badge depicting Queen Victoria’s head facing the fly and the words “Queensland” inscribed above it in gold. Due to difficulty producing the badge, a new badge, similar to Queensland’s present badge, was adopted in 1876. This badge was used until 1901, when the Crown was updated after Queen Victoria’s death. Since then the Crowns have been continuously updated to keep up with each change.
