Story

'Lagaw Dhanalayg' - meaning Ailan Life.

The artwork in our uniforms is a representation of Torres Strait Islanders - the Zenadh Kesaw Mabaygaal people. It represents the simplicity of “Lagaw Dhanalayg” in which we as Islanders observe our natural surroundings and environment.

The are three elements “Boerrdharr, Adhabadh ar Dhapaarnu gimaal” (meaning land, sea & sky).

Everything intertwines with each other in one way or another. This has been a significant relationship for Islanders from a very long time to present in which they observe for the best time in gardening, hunting, diving, reading constellations, etc.
