The white Gallipoli rose

Some people believe that the white Gallipoli rose (archived page from gallipoli2015.govt.nz) should be used if an official Anzac Day logo is created.

This flower blooms during April and May in Gallipoli. It was chosen to form part of the official logo for the Gallipoli 2015 commemorations.


 

Get ready to create an Anzac Day logo...

First, what is a logo?

A logo is an image that is specially created to enable people to instantly recognise an organisation or an activity - for example, a special occasion such as Anzac Day.

The logo needs to be simple, and to convey a meaning or message using few or no words.

To work well in practice, the logo must still be recognisable if reduced to a very small size or changed from colour to black and white. (For example, a logo should not use red print on a black background because making a black and white photocopy would change the red print to black too.)

 

Now create your own Anzac Day logo:

Components like these could be used, but think of others as well.

*Anzac/ANZAC. Note that it is historically correct to write "Anzac Day" rather than "ANZAC Day", and to refer to the soldiers as "Anzacs" rather than "ANZACs". A detailed explanation is provided on our Anzac or ANZAC page. If you wish to step around the issue you can use UPPER-CASE letters for the whole of the expressions in logos, headings and posters: for example, "ANZAC DAY", "REMEMBERING OUR ANZACS".

Anzac Emblem
The idea of an Anzac Day logo as discussed above is quite different from the "Anzac Emblem". For more information, go to the following pages of the Digger History website:
