Coat of Arms of Queensland
At the top is the state badge, consisting of a Maltese Cross with a royal crown.
Two Supporters are represented. On the left is a Red deer, an animal introduced to the colony from London, which gives a link to the Crown. On the right is the brolga, a bird native to the state, and the official state bird emblem.
A shield in the centre comprises a bulls head, a rams head, a sheaf of wheat, stalks of sugar cane, and a shaft of gold. All represent industries vital to Queenslands development.
Below the shield is a scroll emblazoned with the state motto, Audax at Fidelis, Bold but Faithful.
