This banner is part of the museum's Community Banners project, 'Memories and Dreams'. It is symbolic of English immigrants' experiences in South Australia.
The Tudor roses at the top of the banner symbolise England; the Sturt’s desert peas at the bottom represent South Australia.
The six ovals in the centre section illustrate some of the ideals and institutions that English settlers brought with them when they founded the Province of South Australia in 1836. These are British law, government by representation, school-based education, Christianity, racial harmony, and the importance of the family.
The postcards down each side show some of the agricultural, mining, commercial, and social activities that English settlers developed in the early colony.
