The logo was designed by Harry Williamson who also designed the Australian $10 note. The university crest is made up of three elements:
- An anchor which is taken from the City of Sydney's coat of arms
- A double helix from the DNA molecule
- A wave motif representing Sydney's maritime position
- A better version of this logo is needed, due to the picture quality, inaccuracies or other issues with the uploaded logo. You can help Logopedia by uploading it here.
