A QantasLink Q400 aircraft has been painted with a huge letter R in support of a campaign to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Australian Constitution. The logo is of the RECOGNISE movement, which seeks to amend to constitution to recognise Australia’s indigenous peoples. In addition to the larger RECOGNISE logo on one Q400, Qantas will also paint a smaller version of the logo on all 31 Q400s in the QantasLink fleet. Sydney Swans AFL premiership player and Australian of the Year Adam Goodes says more than 214,000 Australians had signed up to be supporters of the RECOGNISE movement. “It’s so important that every one of us plays our part in campaigning for this referendum and securing a resounding YES vote,” Goodes said in a statement on Wednesday. RECOGNISE joint campaign director Tanya Hosch hoped Australians who see the RECOGNISE logo on the aircraft would be inspired to help the movement. “And once we commit, its crucial to back up that commitment by taking action to help spread the word, build this people’s movement and bring about this great achievement for the country,” Hosch said. Qantas group executive Olivia Wirth said this latest move built on the the airline’s long record of celebrating the unique history and heritage of the world’s oldest continuing culture.

    What a great thing Qantas is doing.
    Governments come and go but Qantas keeps making us proud and helping to write Australia’s identity, even with the necessary change of shareholders in recent times.
