The Pink Australia, you may have spotted this on the back of a car, in a Facebook advert or even in Instagram, but what does it actually mean?
The shape of the logo is obviously one of the greatest continents on our planet!
Well, I think it is anyway, I was born and raised here and almost been to every state, still to visit Northern Territory and see Darwin, Kimberley’s and Uluru, it is most defiantly in my near future travel plans.
This country is also known as “The Land Down Under” because of it’s position in the Southern Hemisphere, we are considered upside down to most other continents, and, our toilet water apparently flushes the opposite direction. This country is also know as “The Lucky Country” even thought this was originally used negatively by Donald Horne in his book from 1964 called, funny enough, The lucky Country.
“Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second rate people who share its luck. It lives on other people’s ideas, and, although its ordinary people are adaptable, most of its leaders (in all fields) so lack curiosity about the events that surround them that they are often taken by surprise. by Donald Horne.”
Among other things this comment has also been used in reference to Australia’s natural resources, weather, history, its early dependency of the British system, distance from problems elsewhere in the world, and other sorts of supposed prosperity. This beautiful country that I Love, Live and Breathe, where my family chose to reside, full of great camping spots, is, my island home, so we have many great beaches too. A place where many come to live, so why wouldn’t I want to help the girls of my country.
“Pink encourages action and confidence.”
Why Pink? These days it very much symbolises women, helps recognise a community, and, also brings on many physical affects, such as; stimulates energy, increases the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate. Pink is the color of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.
Did you know that pink was originally worn by boys and blue for girls? but that changed around the 1940’s. Why? Watch this video by Origin of Everything and this video by Vox – How did Pink become a girly colour? Because Entrepreneurs are anything but traditional. Amazing how much history a colour can have behind it.
The Stars, Being the Southern Cross, which is found on the Australian flag, which came from a constellation in the night sky, located in the Southern Hemisphere known as Crux.
Which travellers have also used to Navigate. These stars are very popular and respected amongst Australian’s, you will often see many Aussies with Tattoos (I guess so we can always find our way home if ever lost, Haha) and on car windows with stickers of this constellation. Fembuiz Directory also uses it to represent women networking across Australia with each star respresenting a women in business.
Females that mean Business.
Females + Business = Fembuiz.
