This tee is an education piece for children. When the education system fails to teach the true history of this country, we are doing what we know best, merch with meaning created to start conversations and educate.
This tee features the Torres Strait Islander flag and a variation of the Aboriginal Flag and is an opportunity for children to learn more and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture and history.
Torres Strait Islander Flag meaning?
The Torres Strait Islander flag was designed by the late Mr Bernard Namok of Thursday Island. The flag symbolizes the unity and identity of all Torres Strait Islanders.

Aboriginal Flag Meaning?
Why a heart 💛? We have chosen to replace the ‘sun’ on the Aboriginal [-0-] flag with a heart due to copyright on this flag. This yellow heart, represents pride and love for Aboriginal people and culture. We wish the heart wasn't a thing that's why we are also campaigning to #FreeTheFlag.
