About this flag

Moreton Bay Fig

  • Element 1: Emblem

    Reproductive - fig fruit

    Its fruit is a key source of food in the rainforest. The seeds from the fruit, once consumed, are dispersed by birds and bats which enable the strangler fig to find new host trees and thus begin new life-cycles.

  • Element 2: Pattern

    Behaviour - strangler fig

    Moreton Bay Figs are strangler figs which require a host tree. They begin their life as epiphytic – growing on the truck or branch of the host tree – and then over time envelope the host.
