This is about 1901 when Australia became an independent nation to govern in their own rights as part of the commonwealth. Aussie animals led by Kangaroos pulling the Australian flag up away from the British Lion and the ball and chains tossed away against the back drop of Australia.

On the date the 24th of October 1889 a gentleman named Henry Parkes now referred to as father of federation put forward a speech in Australia. It was to rally support for the idea of an Australian federation. He set out the reason why the colonies should federate and the dangers if they did not do so explaining why. He advocated for a federal parliament with a prime minister a cabinet to govern the whole continent. This would be in conjunction with existing state governments. The federal government would control matters for the whole of Australia such as immigration or defence obviously for the security of the country. By 1900 a bill had been passed by the British parliament to create the commonwealth of Australia. The Australian capital territory was created out of N.S.W. in 1908 and the federal capital named Canberra in 1913 and parliament House opened in 1927.The picture shows the kangaroos these are convicts who came by ship to Australia sent by the British the red cross on white on a lion represents the British. The balls and chains in the sea represent freedom. Although Australia was hell as a convict if they survived the journey and survived the hard labour and gruelling conditions, they could be free, and many went on to build the country as we see it to-day. The Australian flag is being hoisted up over the area of Canberra. The Emus and Kangaroos on either side of the flag represents the Australian coat of arms.
