Many people within the New England area (northern New South Wales) supported New England becoming a separate state. A referendum on the matter held in 1967 narrowly failed and New England has remained part of the state of New South Wales ever since, although there has been the occaisional rumble. Accompanying the article is a black and white photo of the New England New State movement flag. The flag features what looks like a lion standing upright holding a sword with the words "New England" on a scroll underneath.

The lion holds the sword with a gauntletted paw. The background is light blue, and the lion and sword are yellow.
