Why are there four swans on the floor of the Legislative Assembly?
The black swan and kangaroo paw are the bird and floral emblems of Western Australia. Four swans, accompanied by kangaroo paws, are placed so they can be seen from every angle of the chamber. The swans and kangaroo paws replaced the Crown of St Edward, which graced the former carpet of the Legislative Assembly. The Assembly was recarpeted in late 2006.
