Description

Toowoomba Violet Soap

The violet has held a special place in Toowoomba’s history for many years. In January 1932 it was declared Toowoomba’s floral emblem at a meeting of Council as an acknowledgement of its role in the community.

Bunches of sweet violets were sold by mothers and families of World War I soldiers who did not return home, to build a large memorial. The bunches each held 50 blooms and three leaves, tied with cotton and were sold for three-pence to ladies at fundraising events and the races. It was fashionable to wear a posy of violets on their capes.

Violets also feature alongside local wattle on the Toowoomba Coat of Arms that was adopted in 1960.
