Our Flag

The Murdi Paaki flag


The Murdi Paaki flag, designed by ATSIC Officer Tony Burton, was chosen by the Murdi Paaki Regional Council to depict the regions' Aboriginal people with the traditional colours of red, black and yellow. It also reflects the river and fish, with the white colour meaning 'good spirit'.

When flying in the breeze, the flag's chequered design, in the shape of arrowheads, gives the impression of fish swimming in a river.

The Murdi Paaki flag has become a recognised symbol, being used by the Murdi Paaki Regional Assembly, Regional Enterprise Development Institute Ltd, Murdi Paaki Regional Housing Corporation and various other partners in joint programs and projects.

The MPREC logo


In looking to establish its brand as a commercially focused organisation, the Murdi Paaki Regional Enterprise Corporation (MPREC) paid tribute to the original Murdi Paaki flag by 'recapturing it in flight, in a breeze'.

The objective was to create an 'evolution' rather than a 'revolution' of the MPREC logo and identity.

MPREC's flag in motion represents the momentum that MPREC seeks to inject into the development of our region's communities.
