Introducing the #OurBlaze First Nations logo by indigenous artist, Lani Balzan

Pictured: South Coast Blaze Indigenous Logo designed by Aboriginal Artist Lani Balzan.

We’re thrilled to share with you the #OurBlaze First Nations logo designed by indigenous artist, Lani Balzan, to coincide with Round 8, First Nations Round.

Lani is a proud Aboriginal woman from the Wiradjuri people of the three-river tribe. Her family originates from Mudgee and having lived in many different towns across Australia, Lani now calls the Illawarra home.

Here is the story behind Lani’s artwork:

“The logo represents the club’s connection with the players, the community, family and the land. Above the club’s name sits the gathering symbol connecting all those involved with South Coast Blaze. The gathering symbols contain “people” in red and flames in between representing “strength” and “commitment”. Under near the club name are 3 waves with dots which represent the connection to the South Coast “Sea Country”

Thank you @art_by_lani_ for this beautiful interpretation of the #OurBlaze logo. We absolutely love it.
