The Aboriginal Flag is divided horizontally into equal halves of black (top) and red (bottom), with a yellow circle in the centre.

  • The black symbolises Aboriginal people.
  • 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.

A white dharri or deri (a type of headdress) sits in the centre, with a five-pointed white star underneath it. It features three horizontal coloured stripes, with green at the top and bottom and blue in between, divided by thin black lines.

  • The colour green is for the land.
  • The dharri or deri is a symbol for all Torres Strait Islanders.
  • The black represents the people.
  • The blue is for the sea.
  • The five-pointed star represents the island groups. Used in navigation, the star is also an important symbol for the sea-faring Torres Strait Islander people.
  • The colour white of the star represents peace.
