Harmony Day

March 21, 2022

Harmony Day on the 21 March (or Harmony Week in March) is a celebration of our cultural diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.

Our diversity makes Australia and the Northern Territory in particular a great place to live in. The message of Harmony Day is everyone belongs, the celebrations aim to engage people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster sense of belonging for everyone.

Orange is the colour chosen to represent Harmony Week. Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. Australians can choose to wear something orange during Harmony Week to show their support for cultural diversity and an inclusive Australia.

Australia is a vibrant and multicultural country — from the oldest continuous culture of our first Australians to the cultures of our newest arrivals from around the world.

Our cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths and is at the heart of who we are. It makes Australia a great place to live.

An integrated multicultural Australia is an integral part of our national identity. All people who migrate to Australia bring with them some of their own cultural and religious traditions, as well as taking on many new traditions. Collectively, these traditions have enriched our nation.
