Our Logo

The font is inspired by the font used by the BUNJI newspaper in the 70s-80s. BUNJI was the local grassroots paper used to tell the world about the land rights struggle in Kulaluk, NT.

The wave represents the Kulumbirigin Danngalaba people and our country; tropical salt-water country.

The three lines are a homage to the 3 branches of the banyan tree in the Larrakia Flag. The three lines also represent our multi-generational community working together to build our thriving community.

We love our new design.
