In 2017, it is the 25th anniversary of the Torres Strait Flag. For Bernard Namok Jr., ‘Bala B’ the flag is a poignant reminder of home, family and the father he hardly knew. Bernard Namok Sr. won the flag design competition in 1992 but a year later, at just 31 years, he died leaving behind his wife with four young children. Journey across the Torres Straits with Bala B to honor his father’s legacy and witness a rich and powerful story of a man whose design created meaning for a people once invisible to mainland Australia, the people of the Torres Strait.
