The design depicts the connections between our communities and our connections to Victoria.

From connections with Victoria’s changing geography of waterways and mountains to grasslands and deserts, Victorians are also bound by common experiences of natural hazards and coming together before, during and after to strengthen our communities.

The interconnecting lines also depict our systemic view of Victoria and all communities, of country and emergencies. It acknowledges we must work together, gather and learn from each other so we can be stronger together for future emergencies.

We learn from our shared pathways of experience, and work together to find better ways for our current and future communities.
