Our Logo

The Ramahyuck logo was created by Aunty Rose Whitehurst and is designed as a message of unity. The Black and White Swans symbolise the Aboriginal and European people of Australia and the message Boon-Ya-Bur-Werna means ‘to join us’.

The Circles represent the coming together of the two races and are drawn using the colours of the Aboriginal Flag. The black symbolises the Aboriginal people and the yellow represents the sun, the constant re-newer of life. Red depicts the earth and peoples’ relationship to the land. It also represents ochre which is used by Aboriginal people in ceremonies.

The black swan has spiritual significance in the traditional histories of many Australian Aboriginal peoples and is also the emblem of the city of Sale.
