The Australian Government created a Platinum Jubilee Emblem which was launched on Friday, 11 March 2022, to be used for official and recognised events to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year reign.

Queen Elizabeth, as Australia’s longest-reigning monarch, is the first to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.

Three colours make up the Australian Platinum Jubilee Emblem – platinum representing Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne, purple is associated with royalty and gold from Australia’s national flower as well as the national colours – green and gold.

The emblem design is a stylised representation of the Queen’s Wattle Spray Brooch which Australia gifted to Queen Elizabeth during her first visit in 1954.

The Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha Benth) is Australia’s national floral emblem and features the dominant icon on the Platinum Jubilee Emblem. The golden yellow complements the royal purple and platinum.

The Emblem uses the font – Perpetua, meaning ‘forever’ – to acknowledge the Queen’s lengthy reign.

The emblem may be used with permission by individuals, organisations and charities for celebrations to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, including:

  • Commonwealth; State; Territory and local government events
  • events and activities that have been recognised by the Australian Government and listed on the Platinum Jubilee website (events will be available on the website in the coming months)
  • appropriate event related and community souvenir items for official government and recognised events.
