The street furniture also promotes the new logo for Canberra Central depicting the hexagonal shape of the city centre road patterns, with the three surrounding open crescents representing community, culture and landscape.
and some press releases from ACT Government ministers have me wondering whether the name “Canberra Central” is supposed to be more than the name for some silly taskforce tasked with taring up Civic. Are they actually trying to rename, or rebrand, Civic as “Canberra Central”? If so, what on Earth is the reason behind this? It is unnecessary. The area already has a perfectly functional name. Although it doesn’t appear on any maps, the area is known as Civic to all Canberrans. Civic is a word that has some heritage value and significance for Canberrans, as opposed to the bland sounding “Canberra Central”. The very fact it is a commonly known, yet unofficial, name gives it some ‘cultural value’.
But aside from that, the name “Canberra Central” is remarkably similar to the name “Canberra Centre”, Civic’s major shopping mall. It is so similar as to be indistinguishable.
