Story behind the design

The Sturt’s Desert pea is a well-known Australian native flower that is the state floral emblem for South Australia. Although much admired these plants are notoriously hard to grow outside their natural desert environment.

The Pea was named after the explorer Charles Sturt for his exploration of inland Australia. Aboriginal folk lore explains the origin of the Sturt Pea in the following way:

A young and beautiful native maiden was promised in the Dreamtime to a warrior, who made her a cloak of red parrot feathers. From a distance, she would follow her lover in the tribal wars, faithfully roaming the trackless wastes to be near him. Drought years brought famine to the tribe, and the young warrior was one who went far afield in search of food. During his absence the maiden kept lonely vigil, refusing to leave the place of farewell after the tribe had moved on. Their last view of her was a vivid red cloak surrounding her black head as she knelt in hopeful prayer. Neither she, nor her lover, was seen again. When the rains came and replenished the parched earth the tribe returned. Of the girl there was no sign - but a lovely red-and-black flower blossomed where she had last been seen.
