Stunning photograph shows bushfire smoke turning the Australian sky into a re-creation of the Aboriginal flag
- Amazing photo taken of the rising sun in SA seems to re-create Aboriginal flag
- The picture was taken on New Year’s Day as the sun rose over the ocean
- Smoke from the bushfires helped to create the illusion of Aboriginal flag
An amazing photo taken by a woman as fires raged nearby seemed to mimic the Aboriginal flag.
South Australian woman Rose Fletcher took the photo at Victor Harbour as the sun rose on New Year’s Day when she said fires near her home were at their worst.
‘It was taken on New Year’s Day, just after sunrise, when the fires were arguably at their worst, and hearts were heavy and people were frightened – me included,’ Mrs Fletcher told Daily Mail Australia.

‘The rising sun was just a pale disc behind the layers of smoke over the Southern Ocean – and then, for just a few magic seconds, as it moved up through successively dense layers, it formed the Aboriginal flag.’
She said she recognised right away the power of the image and immediately went home to share it.
‘So I went home and put it up on Facebook, hoping that those moments would speak to other people as they spoke to me, and the rest is history,’ she said.
‘Thousands of people picked it up and ran with it.’
The picture resonated with people on social media, gaining more than 5,000 shares and almost 600 comments.
‘Wow. Ancestors are saying something,’ one Facebook user wrote.
‘Hauntingly beautiful,’ another added.
‘Says it all really, Aboriginal people looked after the land. Shame on our government in Australia,’ a third responded.
