NEW ZEALAND HERALD EXTRAORDINARY

Used by: New Zealand Herald Extraordinary

Arms of New Zealand Herald Extraordinary

(Badge)

(Heraldic Banner)

Official blazon

A complex Māori Koru coloured in the traditional manner proper ensigned by a representation of the Royal Crown also proper.

Origin/meaning

The Koru design is used to decorate the rafters of Māori meeting houses, where important ceremonies take place, and it is also found on a number of objects at these ceremonial gatherings. The loops and coils of the Koru also represent the complex Māori genealogical tree of the Whakapapa. Māori genealogy is based for the most part on oral evidence and tradition, and in art the Koru is used to represent this.
