Walkabout Barber Enterprises merchandise supplier, Team Spirit Sports was served with a Cease and Desist from WAM Clothing for breaching the exclusive licensee agreement between WAM Clothing & Mr Harold Thomas (the owner of the copyright for the Aboriginal Flag) for the use of the Aboriginal flag on their United Tribes Autism Awareness jersey for the 2019 NSW Aboriginal Knockout.
A spokes person for Walkabout Barber said "the Aboriginal flag, a symbol of hope, survival and connection for Aboriginal people dating back to the early 70’s is being held ransom by a company who has never marched for, bled for, or draped the coffins of their loved ones with its colours, ever in their lives!"
The United Tribes Autism Awareness team was created to promote the early detection of Autism in youth across the country, and to give parents and families the ability to feel proud and to be heard in a world where children with disabilities are often silenced.
Walkabout Barber Enterprises was the first Aboriginal business to replace the Aboriginal flag with the Free The Flag logo. Since then, we have made the Free The Flag logo publicly available for download and other Indigenous sports teams, organisations and community groups have jumped on board and are supporting the Free The Flag movement.
