History and use
Made by the Tolga branch of the Queensland Country Women's Association as a peace initiative in 1939. With World War 2 looming, the northern division of the QCWA decided to promote understanding between nations by each branch making a flag, and through this also learning about the history and culture of other countries. Branches were able to choose the country and materials used. The flags were displayed in the halls of the various branches and later were also displayed around the State.
