The kangaroo and emu are pretty obvious. In the shield in the middle, from left to right, top to bottom:
- cross of St George and lion (New South Wales)
- Imperial crown and Southern Cross (Victoria)
- Maltese cross and Imperial crown (Queensland)
- Australian piping shrike (South Australia)
- Black Swan (Western Australia)
- Lion (Tasmania)
The star above the shield is the seven pointed Federation Star - one point for each of the six state and one representing the territories. The circular thing is representative of a wreath.
