Acknowledgement of Country

  • CommBank acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands across Australia as the continuing custodians of Country and Culture.

    We pay our respect to First Nations peoples and their Elders, past and present.

    We acknowledge and celebrate the inherent strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

    We thank the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, organisations and individuals that have guided us through our reconciliation journey.

Our artwork

Co-created by Kuku Yalanji and Woopaburra artist Leona McGrath, Indigenous organisation Yerrabingin, CommBank’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous employees, and members of the community, the creative design visually expresses our refreshed brand and values.

The artwork is designed to symbolise the Bank’s respect for and celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures as part of our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

The design conveys three central themes: Community, Connections and Wellbeing, and pairs some of the CommBank colours with traditional Aboriginal designs to create an artwork and narrative that will conjure connectedness and pride with our customers, communities and our people.

Artist Leona McGrath is a proud Aboriginal woman who is originally from Queensland from the Woopaburra People of Great Keppel Island and Kuku Yalanji People of Far North Queensland, and has been painting for over 30 years.
