AUSTRALIA
Australia's Flag:
The star on the left side stands for the 5 states and 2 territories Australia holds. Britain's flag is in the top left corner. On the right of the flag is the Southern Cross, a group of stars.
Australia's History

Gold was first discovered in 1851, resulting in a gold rush that lead to a giant mining industry.
