Patch - Victorian Women on Farms Gathering, Tallangata 1993 Object Reg. No: HT 1412 6

Patch presented in 1993 by the Tallangata Women on Farms Gathering committee for the Women on Farms Gathering perpetual banner. The theme for the Tallangata Gathering was 'Unity with Diversity.' In the words of this year's convenor, Elaine Paton, 'the logo shows a woman from the plains meeting a mountain cattlewoman. Behind them is a view of Lake Hume, the Mitta Mitta Valley, and snow-capped Mount Bogong. They symbolise unity with diversity - the variety of roles that women play on farms. It took a lot of agonising to create the logo (plus a saucer, a cup, a dusty old Letraset pack from the newsagent and lots of rubbing out!) but it really embodies the significance of the intent and ethos of the Gatherings and of our event.' The patch is now attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.
White cotton square mounted with green cotton circular logo. The logo is hand-painted in white and depicts two farm women shaking hands at the base of a mountain. Hand-painted on the logo are the words: 'Women on Farms Gathering/Tallangatta 1993'. At the base of the cotton square a second panel is printed with the words: 'UNITY WITH DIVERSITY'.
