Essendon is proud to unveil its 2021 Under Armour Dreamtime guernsey, which will be worn in the 16th annual Dreamtime at the 'G match against Richmond in Sir Doug Nicholls Round.

Designed by proud Yorta Yorta and Gunnai man Dixon Patten, who has Gunditjmara bloodlines, the artwork tells the story of Norm McDonald; the first Aboriginal player for Essendon who was a Gunditjmara man from the western district of Victoria.

The patterns in the background pay homage to Gunditjmara country, representing the eel traps and lake systems that allowed Gunditjmara to have abundance and prosper for millennia.

One of the totems of the many clans is the red-tailed black cockatoo.

The feathers represent people from all races, genders, religions and backgrounds, coming together for the love of the game and our diverse contributions to our community.

The hands represent the ancestors guiding us on our journey.
