Abstract

The Eureka flag draped over the coffin of Len Fox was there because Len had spent much of his life, some 60 years and three books, authenticating a flag in the Ballarat Art Gallery as the flag that flew over the stockade of the Eureka rebels in 1854, the symbol, in the words of historian Bob Walshe who spoke at his funeral service, "that most dramatically captures the spirit of Australian struggle for an independent democratic republic".
