Here was the flag of the Australian National Airways. Formed in 1936 as a amalgamation of several regional airlines; taken over by Ansett in 1957.
Australian National Airways traced its origin back to 19 March 1932, when Flinders Island Airways was established in Tasmania. On 1 October that year, it partnered withWilliam Holyman & Sons Pty. Ltd., and renamed Tasmanian Aerial Services Pty. Ltd.
On 13 May 1936, Holyman's Airways partnered with Adelaide Steamship Company and Orient Steam Navigation Company, and renamed Australian National Airways. It ceased to exist as a separate entity on 21 October 1957, when it merged with Ansett to form Ansett-ANA.
