The meaning behind our logo
Our logo features a kiwi bird holding a Turkish flag, with a
pikorua entwined in the wing.This logo represents the strong connection between Türkiye and New Zealand, as well as the merging of cultural symbols from both nations. The kiwi bird, a symbol of New Zealand, shows the pride of the Turkish
community living in New Zealand for their adopted country, while still acknowledging their connection to Türkiye through the use of the Turkish flag and the Pikorua symbol. We are excited to use this logo to represent our organization and its values of inclusivity, diversity, and respect for all cultures.
Aeoteroa', or 'The Land of the Long White Cloud', was the name given to the North Island of New Zealand when the Maori navigators first saw signs of the new land in the formations of drawn-out strands of cloud spreading across the horizon.
We wholeheartedly acknowledge and celebrate the enduring connections of all First Peoples to the land, their invaluable knowledge, and captivating stories. Our utmost respect goes to the Elders and Ancestors who watch over and guide the Maori community. Through fostering cultural exchange, understanding, and unity, we strive to create an inclusive space where diverse traditions are cherished, and a harmonious future is envisioned.
Join us on this meaningful journey as we honor the past, embrace the present, and shape a brighter future together, driven by the spirit of unity and compassion.
