This design utilizes the eagle and sun. The eagle, a sacred symbol, is a messenger between earth and the spirit world who represents strength, courage, and leadership. The sun is life giving, bringing peace and healing to those around it. These two elements come together to represent those who are physically, mentally and spiritually active and breaking barriers as Indigenous athletes, as they bring healing to generations of Indigenous peoples who did not have the chance to pursue and achieve their goals.

Featuring a canoe paddler and orcas, this design was created to be used in conjunction with the virtual guide of the Indigenous Sport Gallery. The paddler is guided in their canoe by the orcas, which symbolize family, community, and protection. Similarly to how the Digital Indigenous Sport Gallery and virtual guide helps the visitor navigate the website and learning on the contributions to BC sport heritage by Indigenous athletes.

Combining sport and culture together, this design features salmon which has been a traditional source of nourishment for Indigenous peoples in what is now known as British Columbia. The salmon is integrated into a basketball held in two hands, representing the nourishment that sport provides in the form of respecting and caring for one’s physical and mental wellbeing.
