|Monarchy of Baustralia|
|This article is part of a series|
The Royal Standard of Baustralia refers to flags used by John I in his capacity as sovereign of Baustralia, and her commonwealth realms.
Though universally known as a standard, it is actually a banner of arms comprised of the royal arms of the monarch. Commonwealth realms which do not have their own standard for the monarch will use the Royal Standard of Baustralia.
The flag must only be raised when the monarch is on the property. The flag may not be hoisted to half-mast, even during the demise of the Crown, because there is always a reigning monarch. It must not be flown upside down, except if the monarchy were to fall. The flag must be folded into thirds, then into quarters. If it is desecrated, it shall be burned.
Use in Baustralia
The flag is flown when at the monarch's resedencies when the monarch is present. If the owner of a private residency or building requests, the standard can be hoisted if the monarch is present.
It comprises of a saltire azure with the first quadrant displaying three sprigs of maple leaf, two gules, and one azure, on a field of or. Second, a fouled anchor argent on a field of sable. Third, two stars argent surrounding a eagle argent on a field of azure. Forth, the rank insignia of an admiral of the fleet or on a field of sable.
Prince(ss)es of the royal family receive their own banner on their 18th birthday. An exception was made for Katelynn, Princess of Wabasso. They are variants of the Royal Standard with a three point label with designating symbols.
