Credit for the Tino Rangatiratanga flag goes to Hiraina Marsden, Jan Smith and Linda Munn.
I have used a twelve-pointed sun design from a design by Peter Simon in this gallery.
The design symbolizes the myth of Maui and the Sun, Ra.
The white koru motifs represent both the “long white cloud” and also the ropes used by Maui and his brothers to capture the Sun.
The multi-colored stars represent multi-culturalism.
