The AIATSIS logo is derived from the Koko Bera-Kungen Shield created by George Wilson, Claude Ponto and John William Malcolm. The logo was first published by the Institute’s Council in 1963. Today, AIATSIS continues to work with the families of the creators to develop the story of the Koko Bera-Kungen Shield.
