The most potent symbol of Australia's only rebellion, the Eureka Stockade, is the blue and white Southern Cross flag. What do we know about the women who supposedly stitched the flag in one day under the cover of darkness?
The Eureka Stockade was caused by a disagreement over what gold miners felt were unfair laws and policing of their work by government. Miners were unable to claim the land on which they worked, and so risked being relocated at a moment's notice.
