Acorn's object-based vector image

DRAW is a file extension for an object-based vector graphics image file format used by Acorn/ Risc OS graphic application Draw. Draw files can also be marked as DRW, however in the Risc OS the file system uses a range of three bytes to define possible file types: &000-&FFF. Those file types have no file extensions, only type metadata.
