The story behind our Indigenous jersey

The logo on our 2019 NRL Indigenous Round jersey represents opportunity, relationships and respect.

Designed by Lenny Briggs of the Yorta Yorta and Gunditjmara tribes, the logo features three hands and three lightning bolts.

"The hands represent respect for one another and the opportunities we are handed in our lives, while the Storm bolts represent our relationships and strong links to our community and cultural respect," Lenny said.

"The logo depicts power and determination to push through to reach our goals, to trust, to feel safe and fulfilled with positive connections."

The jersey artwork was designed by Dixon Patten of the Yorta Yorta and Gunnai tribes.

"The logo in the centre represents the Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club, while the outer circles are the broader communities Storm reaches through its various programs," Dixon said.

White lines across the jersey show an individuals path and the four colours used represent the diversity of the four seasons.

"The shields represent strength and resilience and the Yarra River flows past AAMI Park - the Birrarung has been a meeting point and lifeline for local Aboriginal people for a millenia.

"Water represents life and as it flows through the Melbourne Storm community (the logo) it becomes much larger, to show the quality of life improving."
