The National Trust Logo
The symbol of the National Trust of Australia is a trio of gum leaves with two gumnuts. The leaves are, in order of growth, an old leaf with a broken edge, which represents the past, a mature full leaf representing the present and a smaller young leaf representing the future, as viewed through the square window of a heritage building.
The symbol represents Australia’s heritage yesterday, today and tomorrow.
