Lifesaver

Iconic to Australia, this is my take on the the flags that have saved thousands of lives on our beaches. For those who have not taken a swim on a beach patrolled by Australian volunteer lifesavers, every morning, as part of the process of making our beaches safe, Australian lifesavers patrol their beach to assess the the best part of the beach for swimming. Once decided they place flags either side of that area of beach and patrol it to keep swimmers safe and secure.

Often striking against the blue beach and sky, this is my homage to the the safety this flag evokes in the minds of all Australian beach goers.
