A triptych banner commemorates the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One.   

The Centenary also commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts after World War One in which Australia has been involved.

The banner was created by the Waverley Patchworkers Inc. The banner measures 4 metres by 2 metres and consists of 4,888 two centimetre squares which took over one year to create. The group successfully applied for a Department of Veteran Affairs for an ANZAC Centenary Local Grant and the completed work was presented to the Cranbourne RSL.

The banner is presented in three panels: - 

Left panel:  The dawn call to service.
Centre panel:  The landing at ANZAC Cove.
Right panel:  ANZAC Day at the Cranbourne Cenotaph.
