Keeping pace with the needs of our community

King Island Council’s Coat of Arms, granted in 1973 by the College of Arms in London features a winged sea horse symbolizing the importance of air transport and shipping to its remote Island economy. Council’s recent re-brand details elements from within the Coat of Arms, including the tail of the sea horse, which Council plans to use in marketing the Municipality moving forward.

The more modern application of these historical elements references Council’s commitment to keeping pace with the current needs of its community, while building on its strong foundations. This includes bringing the King Island Airport in alignment with the rest of Australia, rather than operating as the exception to the rule and at a significant cost to the community.
