About the City of Bayswater's Emblem
The City of Bayswater’s emblem features a stylised olive tree.
The olive tree has special significance to the district, having been planted by the early settlers in the 1800’s. Today that original olive tree still stands at the bottom of Slade Street.
The colours and features of the logo also hold significance.
The central cog of the emblem represents industry and commerce; the roots, trunk and leaves identify the past, continuing strength and future growth.
The colours of the logo include green and yellow, depicting the natural environment, and red represents the arteries of transport and other vital services provided by the City to its ratepayers.
