On todays Perfection, one of the statements was that the flag of Australia has 13 stars. The contestant correctly said this was false, as the flag has 6 stars. The discussion after the answer was given, was that the 6 stars represent the 6 states of Australia.
However, this is not the case, according to Wikipedia. The 6 stars are the Commonwealth Star plus the 5 stars of the constellation Southern Cross.
Originally the Commonwelth Star had 6 points, representing the 6 states, but a 7th point was added in 1905 to represent the Territory of Papua and any future Territories.
