Maali Name?

The name Maali means black swan in Noongar / Whadjuk language, her ancestors lived along the Derbal Yaragan (Perth Swan River), a significant place for fishing. On the State Flag the black swan is also an iconic symbol. Inspired by this connection with the black swan, Maali was chosen, as it represents Marcia and her people both past and present.
