A circular badge consisting of printed paper between a tin base and a celluloid cover. The badge is divided horzontally, with a blue top half and a red bottom half. The works 'Sports Queen' appear across the horizon line. This and other associated badges are a rich source of evidence on the material and cultural history of fundraising and sporting organisations in Australia. The symbols, colours and mottoes used on the badges themselves also express ideas about the values and identity that Australians held in the early to mid-twentieth century, particularly during wartime.
