The centre piece represents the sun- our giver of life, bringing the banksias to flower. To the left the U shapes show people sitting along the rivers. We grow alongside Country from all she gives us. I am always inspired by how our mob use Country- everything being useful & having purpose. I use Banksias as a symbol of purpose and growth.

When in flower Wiradjuri people soaked Banksias in water to make sweet tea. The wood of the banksia tree was used to make small hand tools and the dried cone and its fibres were used to strain water. The dried banksia cone was also used to carry fire between camps with the clay detail around the campsites and throughout the pink section representing fire.
