Lapel pin: Their spirit our pride
Over the next four years, 2014–18, the Australian War Memorial will host a program of events, exhibitions, and activities surrounding the centenary of the First World War. The centenary is an opportunity for Australians to look back on this momentous event in world history, to understand the impact it had on our nation, and to remember the service and sacrifice of our First World War soldiers. To represent this centenary program, a logo has been developed that takes its inspiration from the iconic Memorial building.
The logo comprises several elements that derive from the history, mission, and purpose of the Australian War Memorial but also reflects symbols of the First World War and the Australian nation of today.
This stylish lapel pin features this logo, on a frosted antique brass coloured background. A small red enamel poppy completes the design.
Each pin measures 2 x 2.8 cm and fastens with a butterfly push pin.
