THE North Queensland Cowboys will play in new Indigenous and Heritage jerseys, as well as turn pink for the first time, in the 2012 NRL season.

The range of five jerseys for season 2012, from the Cowboys' official apparel partner ISC, were unveiled at Dairy Farmers Stadium yesterday.

Renowned artist Susan Peters Nampitjin has provided the eye-catching artwork for the Cowboys' new Indigenous jersey which the club will wear for the first time in the Close the Gap round home game against Manly in round 22.

Peters, who is a contemporary artist of the Walmajarri people, located in the Tanami desert of the south-east Kimberleys in Western Australia, was commissioned by the Cowboys to design the new jersey.

Cowboys hooker Aaron Payne models the club's 2012 jersey.

Predominantly white in colour, the jersey's artwork depicts the traditional Aboriginal and Torres Islander culture and lifestyle of hunting, gathering, dance, song and ceremonies.

It shows a rainbow serpent coming from the ocean and then weaving across the land creating the rivers and the mountains.

"I'm a Cowboys supporter so it was an honour to be asked to be involved in something like this," Susan, who now lives in Townsville, said.

North Queensland's new Heritage jersey will be familiar to long-time Cowboys members.

It is the same navy, grey and white design that the Cowboys wore in their inaugural season in 1995.

"We know many of our fans, both old and new, will be very happy to see the team run out in our original jersey," Cowboys chief executive Peter Jourdain said.

"It should bring back some great memories of those early times at the Cowboys."

The Cowboys have also introduced a pink jersey for the first time in season 2012.

Following the same design as the club's current home strip, the pink jersey will be worn in the Women in League round which promotes the important role women play in the game.

The Cowboys will also have a new-look away jersey next season.

Predominantly white in colour, it will go on sale, along with the other jerseys in the range, at the end of the month. This is the second year that ISC has been the Cowboys' apparel partner.
