1899 Cricket team flag

Today the Sydney Morning Herald (Column 8) runs a little article about a mysterious flag:

For six years Dover Heights vexillologist George Poulos has searched vainly for one of Australia's earliest national flags. In 1899, two years before the Federation, England was toured by an Australian cricket team flying a green and gold flag. He says green and gold were chosen because they were not used by any of the colonial teams squabbling over the colours. "But not even the Australian Cricket Board has any idea what the flag looks like... I am aching to see it." He hopes a descendant of the players has a picture tucked away.
