Flag of Southland

[ Flag of Southland ]
submitted by Glenys Carson, 26 June 2002

Southland New Zealand Spirit of a Nation is the official brand chosen by the local authorities approximately 5 years ago to both capture and promote the lifestyle and personal qualities of Southlanders. This is the official flag of Southland and the logo is reproduced on a wide range of merchandise.

Elements of the logo:
Koru (fern): symbol of strong Maori heritage
The curved shape of the fly portion of the koru: the rolling landscape of Southland and the story-line of our people.
Sun (upper fly): as bright future.
Three pale blue items: stars of the Southern Cross.
Blue rectangle: blue of the clean crisp air and pristine waters.
Figure: Spirit of the people of Southland.

Rugby fan flag

Southland sport fan flag
by António Martins and James Dignan, 1 August 1999

The usual sport’s fans flags are quartered maroon and gold.
James Dignan, 29 March 1999

Maroon and yellow are the colours that are used in regional sports uniforms, particularly those of rugby.
Robbie Ellis, 10 March 1999

The maroon of the Southland and North Harbour flags and playing strips is nearer the colour on the Latvian flag — a very dark red.
James Dignan, 5 April 1999

There are, however, no standardised designs for provincial flags.
James Dignan, 12 September 1996
