he kangaroo image on this logo was first used in 1920 for this Australian Airline when it was inspired by the use of the kangaroo on the Australian penny coin. The kangaroo was used in later iterations of the airline including when it was called TAA and Australian Airlines. The kangaroo was first used on the airlines aircraft on the “belly” of the plane. The kangaroo symbol was first depicted by Sydney designer Gert Sellheim, and then in 1984 the logo was revised by Tony Dunn.
