|Flag of Northern Territory|
|Adopted||July 1, 1978 |
|Designed by||Robert Ingpen|
The flag of the Northern Territory in Australia is ochre with a thick black vertical stripe on the hoist, with a white version of Crux in the center of the stripe. This Crux representation is the same as that of the one on Australia's flag. In the remaining ochre area is a stylized Sturt's desert rose with seven white petals and a black center.
Crux is a symbol of Australia, along with the number seven, symbolizing the six states of Australia (Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania), and the remaining lands, including the Northern Territory.
