The Larrakians are an aboriginal group that in March 1972 demonstrated against the government in Canberra. Flag: The red is for the blood (right red for the living people and left red for the dead). On the white middle part is a brown mound with a tree growing from it it which represents the jungle fowl's nest which is a feauture of Kululuk.

The Larrakians is aboriginal people in Nothern Australia. Their flag was first hoisted 7 November 1971. Larrakian flag that is shown in Flags Through the Ages and Across the World [smi75b] is incorrect. The flag was slighty changed and 7 August 1996 a new version was paraded in the 25th anniversary. Central Device is the Kulaluk tree. Source: Crux Australis [cxa] 53.
