Coat of Arms of Australia

by Hikaru
(Tokyo)

The Australian Coat of Arms is the official symbol of Australia.

The shield contains the badge of each Australian state. In the top half from the left, the states are New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. In the bottom half from the left, the states are South Australia, Western Australia, and Tasmania.

The supporters are native Australian animals: the red kangaroo and the emu!! It is thought that the kangaroo and emu were chosen to symbolise a nation moving forward, reflecting a common belief that neither animal can move backwards easily.

I knew that the Coat of Arms of Australia can be seen in lots of important places of Australia! It means that the Coat of Arms of Australia represents Australian spirit!!!
