Queen's Birthday 2008

Queen's Birthday 2008
In March 2006 Her Majesty attended an official dinner at Parliament House in Canberra, where she wore the Sovereign's Badge as Head of the order of Australia. The Order of Australia is an order of chivalery established in 1975 "for the purpose of according recognition to Australian citizens and other persons for achievement or for meritorious service". The insignia for the Order uses the livery colours of the Australian coat of arms (gold and royal blue). The Sovereign's Badge features the Australian coat of arms topped by the Royal Crown of St. Edward, sitting inside a distinctive wattle blossom disc.
