Patch presented in 1993 by the Tallangatta committee for the Women on Farms Gathering Banner. The patch is now attached to the perpetual banner which is used at the Gathering each year.
"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 within 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."
