Three children thrive and play amongst the native Western Grasslands. Each child represents elements of the traditional land Melton sits on and is symbolised by their figures. The Bullum-Bullum Butterfly represents freedom of expression and is conveyed through having fun and playing. The spiny-rice flower is also depicted which is found in the grasslands of the region, as too the growling green frog and striped legless lizard. Bunjil the Eagle is the Creator Spirit and teaches us the importance of caring for country and protecting culture. The children play in the gathering circle surrounded by family and community highlighting strength in culture and the importance of extended family. The sun represents the nurturing strength of family, community and culture and helps our ‘Yadabiling Boopup – Darling Children’ grow and thrive.
