2014 Indigenous Guernsey

CFC TV: 2014 Indigenous Guernsey Chris Yarran models Carlton's 2014 Indigenous guernsey, designed by Mitch Robinson's partner Emma MacNeill.

Carlton will wear a special edition guernsey for its Round 11 clash with Brisbane, which is the AFL's Indigenous Round. 

The Blues' Indigenous guernsey has an extra special connection to the club, having been designed by Indigenous artist Emma MacNeill, who also happens to be the partner of Carlton's Mitch Robinson. 

MacNeill designed the guernsey during the final weeks of her pregnancy with the couple's first child Chance. She says every aspect of the design has a special meaning.  

"The Boomerang is a powerful symbol that represents a weapon men use for hunting, and in a sense it represents every one of the players, as if they're heading out into a stadium filled with thousands of people and hunting for a victory," MacNeill said. 

"The connecting lines in the letter F represent life and what it's like to be part of a team. The lines are never running smoothly and are always changing direction – this represents the wins, the loses, the good times and the bad. 

"The circles and dots in the boomerang represent fans, both near and far. They are the people who have supported the team continuously and will still be by its side in years to come."

Carlton will take on the Lions at the Gabba on Saturday 31 May, at 4.40pm AEST.
