This flag is titled 'Taonga o te Kiwa'. It is a striking visual representation and celebration of the diversity of all New Zealanders. The design features a circular arrangement of a pair of koru gently curling toward each other set against white, on a deep blue background. This simplified depiction of a pounamu carving is a visual metaphor for New Zealand - islands draped in cloud and surrounded by a powerful ocean - an isolated jewel in the South West Pacific. Our nation possesses a unique mixture of cultures, climates and scenery. It is in this diversity that we can find our greatest strengths. As a small, youthful nation, we will achieve great things by working together, and this flag is a depiction of that ideal.
