Where State Government departments and agencies sponsor a project/event, it is appropriate that the contribution of government resources is able to be recognised by the general public. This may be achieved by way of wording or display of the State Coat of Arms or the State Government Badge with wording "sponsored by". The State Coat of Arms and the State Government Badge can only be used with the written permission of the State Government.
The use of the State Coat of Arms must comply with the rules of depiction.
Many services/projects/goods/events provided by the State Government for the Western Australian community are delivered in conjunction with non-State Government third party providers. The use of the State Coat of Arms seeks to ensure that the State Government receives appropriate recognition for its contribution, and the community is aware of the State Government investment on it's behalf.
Partner, where the State Government is the sole or substantial funder of a service/project/goods/event delivered by third party, or
Supporter, where the State Government is one of a number of contributors (financial and/or other) to a service/project/goods/event delivered by a third party.
Requirements regarding the acknowledgement of the State Government's contribution should be included in contract/agreement documentation. Third party providers must seek approval from their lead State Government agency communications team for any use of the State Coat of Arms. Agencies can seek advice from the Common Badging Committee.
