LANDS OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS
Decorations seen in Newcastle include a representation of the small constellation, Crux Australis, or Crux or Southern Cross as it is known, indigenous people use other names.
When camping, way out of town, the night sky is even more amazing and the Southern Cross shines in the canopy of stars and is an indication of where south lies. It is found on many flags in the Southern Hemisphere.
Oh! Is the name politically correct?
