Object information

Physical description

A small rectangular poster with a blue background and a 'no republic' symbol printed in red, blue and white at the top and text printed in white and yellow that reads "No Republic - ACM / presents / Defending / Our Constitution".

Statement of significance

This collection consists of a variety of material used to promote the 'No' campaign for the Republic Referendum in 1999. Objects recommended for accession into the National Historical Collection include a t-shirt, placards, posters and stickers.

The material represents one of the major political debates in recent times, when Australians were asked to vote on the establishment of the Commonwealth of Australia as a republic and replace the Queen and Governor-General with a President.
