Last year Brooke Blurton became the first native woman ever to reach the final of The Bachelor Australia.

And on Wednesday, the 24-year-old youth worker used her platform for celebrities to raise awareness of a matter that is close to her heart.

Brooke went to Instagram and shared a link to a petition supporting the right of Aboriginals to own their own flag.

Between 1997 and 2018, the Aboriginal Flag was protected by copyright and could only be reproduced with permission from the designer Harold Thomas.

But in October last year, Thomas WAM Clothing granted the worldwide exclusive rights to use the flag on clothing and clothing.

Brooke wrote on Instagram: & # 39; We think this is wrong. The flag must belong to the Aboriginal people and be treated like any other national flag in the world. & # 39;

She explained that a company had recently purchased & # 39; worldwide exclusive license rights to the flag & # 39 ;, something they strongly disagree with.

Brooke urged her fans to sign the petition, which was launched by a fashion company in Aboriginal, called Clothing the Gap.

She added: & # 39; Clothing the Gap started this campaign and is now trying to create as much awareness as possible.

Earlier this month, Brooke claimed that bachelor producers had asked her to remove a photo of herself with an Aboriginal Flag T-shirt from Instagram prior to her debut in the show.

The reason she was asked to delete the post was because all participants were deemed & # 39; incognito & # 39; to be on social media to prevent potential spoilers.
