The design comes from a British certificate designed in 1868 by William Warby. It illustrates many aspects of the work of carpenters and joiners, including bridge building, education, and house construction. Saint Joseph, given prominence as a significant carpenter, is seated above the Society's coat of arms, granted to the London Guild in 1466. This illustrative device was widely used, with minor alterations, on Carpenters' and Joiners' banners in Brisbane, Kalgoorlie, Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand.
