Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) is the national floral emblem of Australia. It is celebrated as a national Wattle Day holiday on September 1. The first celebration of Wattle Day was held on 1 September 1910 in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

The latest announcement that “The Australian Republic Movement will join with Labor, Liberal and Greens MPs to rally support for a republic..” (Australian 14/7/18) is an indication of how morally bankrupt our parliament is.
