I certainly think the Green and Gold Army ( http://www.ggarmy.com ) deserve a mention on this page. I didn't want to add it myself because it may look like spam or promotion. Does anyone else agree? -- Chuq 09:01, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
Don't know about the Green and gold Army being relevant but the hypothesis regarding the colours coming from ' Leed ' soft drink would have to be a joke I think . 220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:18, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
- I'm amazed at the glowing rhetoric on this page extolling the wonders of the green and gold and their dearness to the hearts of all Australians.

Could a case be argued that Australia's national colours are red, white, and blue, because those are the colours the Australian flag uses? - this article just assumes that these colours are green and gold, as if there were no other possibilities. Go back maybe three decades, and I'd never heard of green and gold even unofficially holding any status as the Australian national colours - if I was even aware of it at all three decades ago, it probably appeared little more than a sporting fashion. Are a country's national colours usually those found on its flag?
At any rate, I thought there was some disagreement between different parties over what Australia's national colours are - seem to remember reading something about it a few years ago, with quite strong cases being mounted for both sets of colours. M.J.E. (talk) 18:37, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
