The new BSSCC logo references both ‘native’ animals and the areas’ respective working-class histories. The brickwork kilns of Sydney Park have long been associated with the South Sydney’s former home grounds; rabbits are also been synonymous with the history of the area. Both made for perfect icons for this aspect of the club. Stevedores were selected to represent Balmain as these tireless dock workers played a pivotal role in setting up Sydney’s economy at the beginning of the century. And according to local folklore, tigers once roamed the Balmain area – so this inherently strong, fierce and majestic creature was elevated to symbolise the new BSSCC as its mascot.
