Description of the flag

In Queensland, the Governor still flies the Union Jack with its badge in a laurel wreath in the centre of the Saint-George's cross. Queensland is the only state to still do this.
Brendan Jones, 7 February 1996

Some time ago, Colin Dobson posted a photograph of the Governor of Queensland's car flag and instead of the laurel garland being "stiched" directly on to the Union flag, it was contained within a large white circle - not that uncommon as we have seen with such flags in the past. Perhaps it is easier to manufacture in this style? The Governor of Queensland retains the old-fashion style of garland (no gold ring and at 4/9 hoist width)
Martin Grieve, 27 July 2008

In the most recent edition of Crux Australis [cxa], it is mentioned that there is some talk of following the Victorian model and simply changing the state flag's field to maroon for the governor's use.

The badge featuring Queen Victoria's head in profile had proved difficult to reproduce well, and was replaced [in the Governor's flag and the state flag] by a Maltese Cross and Crown in 1876.

The Tudor crown replaced the original crown [in the Governor's flag and the state flag] in the early 1900s [as part of standardisation by Edward VII].
