To honour the occasion, Melbourne Star will be theming it’s LED light display to reflect the symbolic colours of the returned services league badge, a time honoured emblem worn with a deep sense of pride by those who have served their country.

As Australians nationwide gather for memorial services at dawn, the Melbourne Star will glow red, creating a stunning illumination of the morning sky and symbolising the blood tie of war that exists between servicemen and women.

In the evening, the Star’s LED lightshow will be a powerful white, blue and red- white echoing the purity of servicemen and women’s motive to join the Australian Defence Forces, and blue acknowledging that servicemen and women are willing to render that service to a comrade anywhere and at any time.
