These 'TSI Turtle' design includes the Torres Strait Islander Flag incorporated into a picture of a sea turtle.
The Torres Strait Islander flag was designed by the late Bernard Namok from Thursday Island. It was the winning entry in a design competition, held as part of a Cultural Revival Workshop, organised by The Islands Coordinating Council in January 1992. The flag was officially presented to the people of the Torres Strait at the sixth Torres Strait Cultural Festival on 29 May 1992.
The meanings of the colours in the flag are:
Green – represents the land
Black – represents the Indigenous peoples
Blue - represents the sea
White – represents peace
