Have you seen the new Wembley Road banners?

If you've driven or walked down Wembley Road in Logan Central lately, you've no doubt noticed the series of new banners welcoming people in different languages.

The banners feature welcome messages in 32 languages, from Arabic to Urdu, including Cambodian, German, Swahili, and Ethiopian, as well as Maori and English, and Logan's own Indigenous languages, Yugambeh and Turrbull.

They are the same language graphics as those on display at the entrance to Logan Central Library.
The welcome banners alternate between culturally-inspired designs created by Woodridge State High School students and local graphic designer Robyn Pell. These designs also feature on banners in Station Road, Woodridge, which were supported by funds from Logan City Council's Division 2.

Our city is proud of its cultural diversity, and these banners - a Logan: City of Choice initiative - are a way of sharing that pride with locals and visitors.

  • Arabic
