Sydney council considers making Captain Cook logo more inclusive

A Sydney Council is considering changing its logo, which features Captain Cook, to make it more inclusive.

Mosaic artist Tim Cole has modified the image to include a young Indigenous girl in recognition of Dharawal culture.

Sutherland Shire Mayor Carmelo Pesce told Ben Fordham they will seek community consultation before changing the logo.

“It sounds like a great idea and it looks beautiful.

“It’s something that we need to bring the community along with us.”

Ben Fordham says he thinks it’s a great idea.

“Personally, I’d like to see more of this, where we can update things as opposed to tearing things down.”
