Here is an explanation of all status flags and symbols from Westlaw AU.

To summarise briefly: 

  • A red flag warns that the case has been reversed or varied, or disapproved or overruled on at least one point of law. (Subsequent positive treatment does not remove the red flag.)
  • A yellow flag warns that the case should be viewed with caution. However, the case has not been reversed, varied, disapproved or overruled.
