The Koru (Māori for "bight" or "loop") is a spiral shape based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizing new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattoos. The circular shape of the Koru helps to convey the idea of perpetual movement while the inner coil suggests a return to the point of origin. #1446874

Beautifully captured Dominick. You may have noticed the silver fern features prominently as a sports logo and indeed a lot of people want to design a new national flag with the silver fern featured on it. #10017989
