How many stars are there on the Australian flag?

Six How many stars are there on the Australian flag?
The answer is: Six

The Union Flag is thought locally to symbolise Australia's history as six British colonies and the principles upon which the Australian Federation is based, although a more historic view sees its inclusion in the design as demonstrating loyalty to the British Empire.

The location of the stars is as follows:
Commonwealth Star - 7 pointed star, centred in lower hoist.
Alpha Crucis - 7 pointed star, straight below centre fly 1/6 up from bottom edge.
Beta Crucis - 7 pointed star, 1/4 of the way left and 1/16 up from the centre fly.
Gamma Crucis - 7 pointed star, straight above centre fly 1/6 down from top edge.
Delta Crucis - 7 pointed star, 2/9 of the way right and 31/240 up from the centre fly.
Epsilon Crucis - 5 pointed star, 1/10 of the way right and 1/24 down from the centre fly.
