The common company nickname "Flying Kangaroo" probably derives from this logo. Note the shape of the Australian continent in the southern hemisphere of the globe.

Hulsbosch tweaked the Qantas logo in July 2007 to make way for the arrival of the Airbus A380, but first flew on one of their Boeing 767-300ERs. Both the kangaroo and the text were modified.


Qantas Airways Limited logo

On February 1, 2012, Qantas adopted a new logo which gives a bold statement of Australian spirit. The logo mark serves as the flying kangaroo, which communicates a sense of energy. The new kangaroo is more abstract than the previous to match the increase focusing of contemporary designs for it's in-flight and on-the-ground products. The mark is paired with a stable and formal type.


Qantas Logo 2016

On October 27, 2016, Qantas' flying kangaroo was redesigned by Qantas' lead designer Marc Newson and Houston Group in Sydney. The triangular container was reshaped to resemble that of a modern aircraft. The roo graphic was changed by losing some details such as the arms and bolstered with some gradated areas to simulate a three-dimensional feel. The wordmark had also changed.
