About this object

The 2010-2011 Queensland Flood and Cyclone Citation consists of a maroon ribbon with four white vertical stripes surrounded by a bronze metallic frame.

The four white stripes represent the four Emergency Service Agencies — Queensland Police Service, Queensland Ambulance Service, Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, and Emergency Management Queensland (e.g. State Emergency Services).

The cyclone symbols on both side of the citation represents the time-line of cyclonic events occurring between Category 1 Tropical Cyclone Tasha in December 2010 and Category 5 Tropical Cyclone Yasi in February 2011. The swirls on the top and bottom of the citation represents waves associated with mass flooding which occurred throughout many parts of Queensland.

A miniature version of the citation is also provided, which is worn with miniature medals on a Mess Dress jacket, on a dinner jacket, or on equivalent formal wear at Mess dinners or formal evening dinners.
