Harmony Day is celebrated on or around the 21 March.
It is regarded as a celebration of our cultural diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.
Orange is the colour chosen to represent Harmony Day. 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 on 21 March to show their support for cultural diversity and an inclusive Australia.
