The new Ngāti Kuri flag is a symbol of moving forward – haere whakamua

The Ngāti Kuri flag

As part of the Ngāti Kuri Trust Board’s objective of protecting our cultural and tribal identity, a Ngāti Kuri flag was designed to reflect our te whakakitenga (our vision): that Ngāti Kuri are self-sufficient, strong and thriving.

Our flag represents the people of Ngāti Kuri and recognises our historical foundations whilst looking ahead. The design reflects a strong unity of purpose and a progressive, positive outlook for our people.

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi; Engari he takimano nō aku tūpuna.

(my strength comes not from one source, but from thousands; from my ancestors)
