The Gold Coast SUNS have today launched the club’s 2022 AFLW Indigenous guernsey which will be worn for the first time in Round 5.
Like in previous years, the SUNS will utilise its Indigenous guernsey as the dedicated clash guernsey in 2022.
SUNS AFLW Indigenous footballer Kalinda Howarth was involved in the design process for this year’s guernsey and said it was a privilege to be able to share her culture.
“It’s been super special this year to be able to have some input into this guernsey,” Howarth told SUNS Media.
“Being able to represent my family and my culture has been an incredible process to be a part of and I’m really thankful.
“I think it’s come out looking incredible and I’m looking forward to wearing it this weekend.”
The guernsey was created by local Bundalung-Yugambeh artist Christine Slabb for a second consecutive year.
The white sun on the guernsey represents the Gold Coast and the GC SUNS AFLW players and their families and communities.
The yellow sun at the top-back of the guernsey depicts the sunrise coming out of the ocean while the symbolic nature of having the sun on both the front and back of the playing strip signifies the past, present and future of the football club.
The SUNS will wear the guernsey for the first time against Melbourne at Casey Fields before wearing it again for Indigenous Round in Round 8.
