The images on the banner connect the Filipino community here to remembered people, landscapes and cultural traditions in the Philippines. Most of the original artworks were painted and exhibited in South Australia. There are also photographic images of well-known members of the Filipino community and Filipino-born children in South Australia.
The background cream fabric is Filipino barong tagalog and the braid edging the collage of images is of a traditional Muslim design. Around the edge of the banner there are symbols of Australia such as Sturt’s desert pea. There are also bamboo shoots. They are there to show that ‘a part of the heart of a Filipino immigrant will always belong to their ancestral beginnings’.
