Use of the Locked State Coat of Arms Policy
The Western Australian State Government symbol is a badge featuring the State Coat of Arms. Official use of the State Coat of Arms is protected under the Armorial Bearings Protection Act 1979. Used on WA Health communication materials, the State Coat of Arms is combined with the agency name, ‘Department of Health’ to create the Department of Health State Government Badge. The rules for applying the Department of Health State Government Badge are covered in Operational Directive OD0653/16 Use of the State Government Badge Policy.
The Department of Health State Government Badge must not be provided to external (non-government or third party) organisations for display on their communication materials.
The Locked State Coat of Arms was introduced by the Department of Premier and Cabinet in 2015. The Locked State Coat of Arms is to be used in situations where services/projects/goods/events, provided by the State Government, are delivered in conjunction with non-State Government third party providers.
The Locked State Coat of Arms may be provided to external (non-government) organisations for use on their communication materials associated with services/projects/goods/events for which:
The Locked State Coat of Arms provides a means to gain recognition for the State Government’s support of, and investment in, a range of services to the community. It does not specify the contribution of any particular agency, but rather that of the State Government as a whole. When two or more State Government agencies are partners or supporters of the same initiative delivered by a third party, the Locked State Coat of Arms is to be used as the sole logo representing all Government agencies involved in the initiative.
the Department of Premier and Cabinet’s Recognition of the State Government by Third Party Providers: Style Guide
both provide information about the usage of the Locked State Coat of Arms on communication materials of external (non-government or third party) organisations.
