NEW ZEALAND HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION LOGO
I learned that the logo of the Human Rights Commission represents traditional Maori weaving, the design of a Maori cloak that’s has threads, and knots at the bottom of it. It represents traditional Maori weaving of New Zealand flax.
The logo symbolises many strands that are woven together, representing both the uniqueness of individuals and also our collective identity as New Zealanders.
Our diversity and our unity. Emphasis our inter-connectedness and interdependence. The knots at the bottom of the cloak secures the threads. Together they make up the korowai of our Human Rights and Responsibility
This also symbolises the many muka (prepared fibres of the NZ Flax) The strands that are woven together, representing both the uniqueness of individuals and of our collective identity.
Our diversity and our unity. Our interconnectedness and interdependence. The (Pona) are the knots that secure the threads make up the korowai of ALL New Zealanders Human Rights, the knots secure the threads.
The korowai being reflective of honour, leadership, human dignity, identity, warmth, protection, skill and beauty.
Human Rights are the birth right of the Human Family
