As the name suggests, the Free the Flag movement aims to:

 Free the Aboriginal [-0-] flag from its current licensing agreements and see Aboriginal people have equal rights and access to their flag.

We want the Aboriginal flag to be treated like every other recognized official flag in the world. We are the only race in the world, that has to pledge our allegiance to flag that is a piece of private property. 

We want to celebrate the Aboriginal flag without asking for permission. We want free consent.

We want to see more Black flags in the world. The current licensing agreements and copyright on the Aboriginal flag is distressing for the community. People don't feel the same sense of pride and love for the flag and many are just not prepared to ask for permission to use it and pay royalties. Flags unite people and we are afraid that we are going to notice an absence of the Aboriginal flag now.

We want the consumer to have freedom of choice of whom they purchase their flag products. The exclusive worldwide licensee holder for Aboriginal Flag on clothing is WAM Clothing. One of the directors of WAM (Ben Wooster) was also the sole director of Birubi Arts which is in liquidation and fined $2.3 for selling fake Indigenous art. Judge Perry said "Birubi is currently in liquidation and is unlikely to be able to pay the fine". Meanwhile, Ben Wooster continues to profit of Aboriginal culture and identity.

We don't want to pay more for all our [-0-] merchandise. You only have to head to the Flag World website to see that  the Aboriginal Flags cost more, it's a national disgrace!
