The ribbon has three equal stripes of gold and azure-blue edged with azure-blue. The colours were the national colours of Australia at the time of introduction.

The clasp is a cupro-nickel bar with the Royal Cypher flanked by sprigs of wattle in the centre.

When the ribbon is worn alone a clasp is indicated by the addition of a cupro-nickel round rosette, or a silver miniature Federation Star.
