The Hawks will once again pay homage to their proud Illawarra ties with their specially designed Indigenous round uniforms, designed by local artist, Lani Balzan.
Story of jersey by designer Lani Balzan: Artwork name "Coming Together"
"I wanted to keep the design in line with the club's mascot and colours but recreating the hawk with a more traditional style design detailed with Aboriginal dot and line work.
The idea of creating a gathering symbol was always an idea I wanted to implement and it worked perfectly with placing the basketball in the middle.
The gathering symbol represents the club, the team and the community coming together celebrating the NBL and in particular the Indigenous round.
The lower half of the artwork represents Sea Country where the Illawarra Hawks are located in Dharawal Country, with the waves forming the ocean connecting to the land.
The players are represented in this section symbolising their connection to the land.
The two white dot symbols represent the community of supporters and fans coming together as one to celebrate the special occasion.
They are symbolised in the design as a way for the club to show its respect for its supporters and First Nations people."
