The following is from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website,
on the page that discusses the coat of arms of Australia:
Australia has never adopted any official motto or floral, faunal or bird
emblem. By popular tradition, however, the golden wattle, kangaroo and emu
are widely accepted as national floral, faunal and bird emblems.
