About the logo

dpaw-callistemon-logo

The design is a stylised representation of a bottlebrush, or Callistemon, a group of native plants including some found only in Western Australia. The orange colour also references the Western Australian Christmas tree, or Nuytsia.

Western Australia’s native flora supports our diverse fauna, is central to Aboriginal people’s idea of country, and attracts visitors from around the world. The leaves have been exaggerated slightly to suggest a boomerang (at the base of the flower) and ocean waves (above the wording). The blue background also refers to our marine parks and wildlife.
