Christmas flags

We love our richly multi-cultural city, and Christmas is pretty great too - so our festive flags are a celebration of both.

The flags were designed in-house by our communications and marketing team. The concept was to create a Christmas tree shape from stylised “baubles”, featuring motifs representing te ao Māori, and 11 Pacific cultures.

We commissioned local artist Moses Viliamu to draw the motifs which were then transformed into colourful festive trees.
