This weekend, AFL Barwon marks the Indigenous Round of Football and Netball, and we are thrilled to be taking part in this important weekend, being played on Wadawarrung land.

Drysdale has worn a number of Indigenous designs over the last few years, with our current Indigenous playing jumpers first being worn in 2022. We were introduced to local Indigenous artist, David Flagg from David Flagg creations, which has been warmly received by our players and supporters. David has provided the following as his inspiration and meaning behind the design:

Front: We have a hawk to represent the club’s logo. The boomerangs shows the strength of the club from the junior levels through to the senior playing groups. The cycles and lines are for everyone involved at the club and connection they have with one another, creating a safety net for each other. This pattern continues around to the back.

Back: The design on the back is for the Drysdale home ground being show with the hawk prints in the middle of the ground. The design throughout the cycle is the clubs story/ history. The arches are for all the different playing groups involved at the club.

This weekend, our Senior Men, Reserves and Senior Women will all be wearing David’s design, to celebrate and honour the local Wadawarrung people and land that we play our great game on, and rich history and impact Indigenous culture has had on Australian Rules Football as a whole.
