Background

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

It was rumoured that two female flag makers, Susannah Morgan and Mrs Oliver made the Eureka Flag. Susannah Morgan would have had the opportunity, experience and premises to undertake such a venture. Oliver and Morgan reported that they made a flag to order around the time of Eureka but they thought the flag they made bore the Lone Star of Texas in the middle. They were not sure whether it bore the Stars and Stripes in one corner. Both testified that the flag in the Art Gallery was not the one that they made. Withers wrote that "All they seem to know is that they made a flag to somebody's order in the usual way of their business at that time." [1]
