was during the centenary celebrations of 2004 that the centenary
committee explored the idea of creating a number of memorabilia
items to be sold to CFA members.
While designs were being drawn up for the various
merchandise items, it was agreed that a logo be produced for the
centenary celebrations. After a logo was agreed upon by the brigade,
it soon became the official emblem of the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade.
The logo itself is modelled on the Maltese Cross
which is a recognised firefighting emblem throughout the world.
The centrepiece of the design includes three operational
pieces of firefighting equipment which represent the nature of the
firefighting duties in Riddells Creek.
These symbolic constituents include a rakehoe resembling our rural
firefighting requirement, a town branch denoting our urban abilities
and finally a hydrant which represents our source of water for both
Finally, the logo contains a reference to
the birth of the brigade back in 1904.
