About Our Logo Design

Artwork Name:

"Spirit of Freedom"

Artwork Meaning

The Falcon in our Painting of the Chamber Story stands for the Spirit of Freedom. This captures the vision of our Chamber, the freedom for our people through education, employment and business. The circle represents the meetings of the Chamber and the coming together of Aboriginal men and women working to build the capacity of our communities and creating a better future for our children. The circle is black representing our Aboriginality while the men are represented in the colour red in honour of our creator Biame. The women are represented in yellow after our mother earth.

The many pathways leading to the centre show our people travelling from all over the Hunter region to Mandurah Hunter Indigenous Business Chamber to talk business. From here they will begin their journey to achieve their economic vision.
