Feathers rising high above the clouds
Powerful wāhine warrior, our guardian
Watching and waiting
Protecting Christchurch, inspiring citizens
Ambling by
Colourful korowai, magnificent necklace, the
Koru – promising new beginnings.
Sacred ruru, ancient
Legendary symbol of warning
Precious kōtare offering good luck
Leaving a legacy of hope.
