My series of te reo ensigns began while curating the collection at the Duke in Kororareka/Russell. I also published a rough version of this ensign while the "flag debate" was raging. Red ensigns used to be given to iwi and hapu who were loyal to the crown and they would sew the iwi name to the field of the flag and fly them. This artwork celebrates the bicultural blend we see growing in all of us and flies the name proudly, AOTEAROA, and promotes the two history idea of our duality, te reo and the Jack, a nod to history and treaty partners forging a future.
