Title: Four ‘Review of Reviews’ Competitors Successful
Medium: article in a non-vexillological source
Language: English
Source title: Review of Reviews
Source number (date): (1901.09)
Source pages: (1+5) ?

The caption actually reads:

Review of Reviews Federal Flag adopted as the National Flag by the Commonwealth Government
The article is headed:
Four ‘Review of Reviews’ Competitors Successful
This shows the agenda of the Review of Reviews — it was a populist magazine congratulating itself on the contribution of the magazine’s competition to the government competition.

The article then began:

What is the flag of Australia? The design on the cover of the present issue “gives answer” — for it has been chosen from over 30,000 others by the five expert judges, and recommended for adoption as the Commonwealth flag.
So, the significance that some attribute to the cover’s caption is misleading — it is only journalistic shorthand for a more complex set of facts as to the process whereby the Australian flag was adopted.

For many years, the cover of the September 1901 issue of Review of Reviews was unknown. The various state libraries had the habit of binding old journals and removing the covers of individual issues. A few years ago, John Vaughan managed to locate a copy of the journal with the cover intact. This particular copy has an inscription which shows that it was previously owned by E. J. Nuttal, one of the flag design competition winners. The cover and the article have been reproduced as a facsimile edition and many copies have been distributed by ANFA. I am not aware of any website that has reproduced the full text and illustrations of the article.
