Our logo

"Woven Together To Become Strong" or "Whiri Whiri Ngia Mai A Tatou Kia Kaha Rawa"

The new logo was designed in 1989 when the former Whangarei City, Whangarei County and Hikurangi Town Council's melded into one cohesive voice for the district.

"Woven Together To Become Strong" or "Whiri Whiri Ngia Mai A Tatou Kia Kaha Rawa" is one of the philosophies behind the choice of the colours burgundy and grey.

The broadly woven "W" stands for the concept of a wider Whangarei, while its peaks represent our intention to strive to the highest ideals in local government.
