Use of the State Government Badge Policy
All WA Health communication materials are required to display the State Coat of Arms as a key element of the Department of Health State Government Badge. The State Government Badge combines the State Coat of Arms with the agency name, ‘Department of Health’.
The State Government Badge is not to be digitally altered, adapted or changed in any way. It should not be used as a watermark or overprinted with words or designs, nor should it be placed on top of words or designs. Wherever practicable, the State Government Badge should be placed at the top left hand corner of any page, signage or electronic document and should never be used at less than 15 mm wide, measured across the Coat of Arms.
When it is necessary to co-badge the Department of Health State Government Badge with other government department or external stakeholder organisations, the badge should be the visually more prominent logo.
These rules apply across the State Government, as stipulated in the Premier’s Circular 2013/02 – Use of WA State Government Badge by Public Sector Agencies. Guidelines for applying these rules are available on the Department of Premier and Cabinet website at www.commonbadge.dpc.wa.gov.au
The WA Health Style Guide for Corporate Visual identity Guideines also provide information about the usage of the WA State Government Badge on WA Health communication materials. This guide is available on Healthpoint.
The Communications Directorate is responsible for advising on the use of the Department of Health State Government Badge. Phone 9222 6430 or email email@example.com
