Hey there and welcome back to my website.
It has been a long time since the last post.
Today I drop some knowledge, may you dont know.
About what? Just keep reading 🙂
Did you recognize these star formation?
May you have seen as tattoo or some nations use it as symbol on there national flags.
But do you know why these formation is that famous in Australia?
In the 16th century, european voyager steer trough the south ocean, they had notice a cross in the sky.
They thought it is an sign from church.
With time voyager recognize, that the cross shows the way to south celestial pole with the middle line. Why Austalia use it as a symbol? Amongst other reasons this starformation is very bright and you can see it from every point in australia.
As some one told me this,I said that I dont belive it. and asked him if he know how big australia actualy is.
He just smiled and said: Remember my words, If its time and you stay on the other side of the country.
I did. Every time I took a look in the sky there have been no clouds and these five stars. Brigther as any star around. And the crasiest fact: you can see the cross, anywhere.
Thats why 1854 miners used this as an motivation.
In this year, miners fought against the britains crown. The time of the Eureka Rebellion!
Peter Lalor ( one of the most important people of the rebellion time)
proclaimed: „We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties.“
In 1855 the fight has been over and the miners got what they want.
That has been one of the most important reasons for the foundation of the state Australia.
More knowledge and things I know soon. 🙂 It has been just a short cut.
