    The design is a reflection of the Geelong, Bellarine, Surf Coast and Colac Otway landscape. It highlights the strong landmarks in the region as show by Bunjil, the spirt and creator of the lands depicted as an Eagle as he fly’s over the land’s. Included within the design is the powerful Barwon River and the tracks of the mighty Kangaroo which have lived on the lands here for over 60,000 years.

There are two yarning circles which highlight the importance of football and the unity that football has that keeps people connected. It includes all competitions within the region and the umpires that officiate the sport.
