According to Australian Flag Society minister, Nigel Morris, the flag holds historical significance as it has become the flag that Australia has grown with and the flag represents several achievements that Australia has gained in international settings. However, the present flag is not the only national symbol in the nation. Since Federation was established, for most of the time, this flag flew alongside the union Jack of Britain that undertook national flag precedence between 1924 and 1954. Until the end of the 1920s, the flag of the federation remained more famous that the flag of Australia for people and even in some official situations. An example can be quoted here to support this claim.

The creation of an individual’s identity relies on one’s personal beliefs.
As with all social knowledge stigma is dialogically constructed that is, we are born into social worlds already permeated with attitudes, values and prejudices, and we are active participants in the ongoing reproduction, dissemination and contestation of stigma. Thus the stigmatized individual’s identity is dialogically constructed as with all identities that is, one must learn what is ‘normal’ in order to understand that one is ‘not normal’. Through socialization, a stigmatized individual learns and incorporates the standpoint of the normal and also learns the consequences of possessing their stigmatized attribute and this is essentially because the stigmatized and the normal are social products of the same set of norms and

Australian people Australia is one of the most ethnically diverse societies in the world today. Almost one in four Australian residents were born outside of Australia and many more are first or second generation Australians, the children and grandchildren of recently arrived migrants and refugees. This wide variety of backgrounds, together with the culture of Indigenous Australians who have lived on the Australian continent for more than 50,000 years, have helped create a uniquely Australian identity and spirit. Indigenous peoples and cultures Before the arrival of British colonisers in 1788, Australia was inhabited by the Indigenous peoples - Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, sometimes referred to as the First Australians. Aboriginal people inhabited the whole of Australia and Torres Strait Islanders lived on the islands between Australia and Papua New Guinea, in what is now called the Torres Strait.

According to Daryl self perception is “A person’s view of him or herself and of any mental or physical attribute that makes up the person’s self. The perception theory of how self knowledge unfolds.” It assumes that internal states are inferences resulting from observation of one’s behaviour (Tuntufye., 1993: 267). Understanding how people get to know themselves is important because self knowledge is a foundation which people use in the process of forming values, preferences and attitudes. Clear self knowledge helps people make decisions in daily life, whereas the absence of well defined self knowledge can render an individual unable to make these decisions. The self perception theory consists of two basic claims.

As a reference text it is particularly adept at explicating the role states play in democracy, particularly as Galligan accounts for changes in their roles over time. His analysis of Commonwealth-state relations, particularly his identification of the fact that states have a ‘greater influence’ in ‘many areas’ of daily life does two things. First, it shows that, despite increasing centralisation, states still play an important role, opening up room for analysis. Second, and more importantly, it shows that states play a more direct and localised role in Australian democracy, an insight I hope to build on more concretely in my
Australia is a diverse and multi-cultural country and Victorian Multicultural Commission (2011), states that Victoria has one of the fastest-growing diverse populations in Australia. For what reason should there be more services as well as more emphasis on CALD individuals and groups? Bagshaw et al (2002), stated that mainstream family violence services are ill-equipped in regards to dealing with the complex needs of individuals and groups from CALD backgrounds who are marginalised in the community. InTouch (2010), stated that women from a CALD background who experience family violence are particularly vulnerable. InTouch (2010), further argues that experiencing family violence in itself is already a challenging and traumatising situation, but it can be can be accentuated by unfamiliarity with services, limited culturally appropriate services, and language difficulties p. 11).

The first indigenous individuals to inhabit what is now Australia were the Aborigines who are people of the Aboriginal race of Australia. These individuals migrated into Australia at least 40,000 years ago when the
