If I had a festival hat made for me I would chose the koala bear because all of the symbolic meanings related with the animal I relate to very well and value. The koala bear symbolizes connection, protection, memory, pleasure, magic, calm and last but not least trust. From my festival hat I would like to obtain these humble qualities. Originally Koala's were brought into the world as borrowers therefore they share a special connection to the Earth (Mother), over time they have adapted to an arboreal life. Now koala's are almost strictly arboreal animals and this deepens their connection because trees are the ultimate symbol of interconnectivity. Myself as a person I am very in tune with nature, spirituality and love the bliss of the outdoors. Marsupial's are particularly symbolic of connection in the ways of mothering because of their pouches they can keep their young so close. People affiliated with koala's are referred to as dreamers, and I'd like to consider myself a dreamer.
