About the Logo

The Aboriginal symbol at the heart of Australia represents the centrality of Aboriginal people to the identity of Australia. The traditional symbol of people sitting around a fire is a symbol also for a new political culture, where instead of government versus the ‘opposition’, genuine debate can take place, listening to each other instead of tearing the other down. In so many ways the path to Australia’s future, represented by the arrow, passes through its past, reaching out to the Pacific, Asia, and to the world.
