My design stands for integrity, equality, harmony cultural respect and fairness on the last country settled on earth. The black, white and blue represents the Maori, Pakeha and the variey of multicultual people arriving over the sea who now all live together under the cool Southern climatic weather, the wide Alpine snowy landscapes and down to New Zealands bright teal blue shores with the silver fern found everywhere. My designs respects the many ongoing cultures and lifestyles of New Zealanders, including our succesful sporting teams the All Blacks, All Whites and many more, the great rugged outdoors and all our societys achievers and adventurers. The colours in this design are well known all over New Zealand that makes our people part of the landscape and countryside. Credit for the fern goes to Kyle Lockwood.
