Help us protect the emblems that protect lives
It's a symbol that everybody recognises, but not everybody knows what it means. In times of war and conflict, the red cross emblem affords protection to Red Cross workers, military medics and military religious personnel who are not participating in hostilities. It means 'don't shoot - we're not part of the fight'. With Australian Red Cross's new 'The Emblem' app, you can help us protect the emblems that protect lives in armed conflict.
