Wrapping up NAIDOC Week

We learnt a lot this week through our studies and research around
NAIDOC week.
One thing that sticks in my mind is the symbolic meaning behind the flags.
It is something that I found interesting so I though I would share.

Aboriginal Flag

Black: represents the people
Yellow: is the sun and protector of life
Red: represents the earth and the spiritual relation to the people

Torres Strait Islands Flag

Green: Represents the land
Blue: Represents the sea
White: Represents peace
Black: Represents the Indigenous people
The dhari (headdress): represents Torres Strait Island people
Five pointed star: represents the 5 major Island groups.
The star also represents navigation, as a symbol of the seafaring culture of the Torres Strait. 
What did you do to celebrate NAIDOC week?
