Darwin City Council flags

Darwin City Council uses two flags. That is according to document about Council's symbols available on their website.

Symbols - coat of arms, logo and flags - are adopted 25 February 1997 and the document has been reviewed and amended on 12 June 2007. Regarding flags, it says:

Council will maintain suitable Flags for use on appropriate occasions.

One flag will contain the official Coat of Arms, with its nine colours and the CITY OF DARWIN printed underneath in blue, on a yellow background flanked by red and green. The other flag will contain the City Logo and be in the colours of blue, green and white, on a white background.

The flags will generally be used as follows:-

  • Coat of Arms Flag
    • Civic Centre for important ceremonial occasions (e.g. Visits by the Queen, Governor-General, Administrator, etc.)
    • Lord Mayors car (sic) for ceremonial and official occasions.
    • Council Chambers
  • Logo Flag
    • Civic Centre
    • City promotions, business or activities (e.g. Airport, Expo, Trade Fairs, etc.)
    • Council Chambers

The City Flags may be flown my other organisations in the following circumstances:-

  • the organisations wishes to fly one or both of the flags in conjunction with either or both the Australian and Northern Territory flags, or alone;
  • the business the particular organisation engages in would not offend the community;
  • for specific functions or for specific purposes;
  • the flags are in good condition; and
  • the organisation is non-political in nature.

The City Flags will only be used by other organisations with the prior approval of the Public Relations Officer.

Darwin City Council's document about Council's symbols available on their website says:

Council’s official Coat of Arms, which is in nine colours, will generally be used on Lord Mayoral stationery and signage associated with the Lord Mayor’s Office.

The Coat of Arms will only be used by other organisations by resolution of Council, and will be printed or shown in its proper form when such approval is given.

Logo Flag

Darwin City Council's document about Council's symbols available on their website says:

The official colours of the City Logo (Dragonfly) are blue PMS 286, green PMS 354 and white.

The City Logo will generally be used by Council in respect of its public image, activities and services and where Council lends its name to an activity or service.

Where the purpose of signage is to identify Council as the source of information or the provider of facilities, Council’s City Logo is to be used, eg Council stationery and facilities.

The City Logo may be used in the promotion of tourism by the Darwin Region Tourism Association and its affiliates and by organisations associated with the Darwin City Council.

The City Logo will only be used by other organisations with the prior approval of the Public Affairs Manager and will be printed or shown in mits proper form when such approval is given.
