We got some temporary tattoos of the Diversity Fern from the Human Rights Commission.
Each of the six fronds of the Diversity Fern symbolises a different culture.
They are

  1. The traditional kowhaiwhai pattern from a painted panel of the Manutuke church (1849).
  2. Samoan pattern from a tapa cloth.
  3. An abstracted form of a pattern present in many African and Asian motifs.
  4. A European Fleur de Lys design, from a hinge of a door of Auckland’s St Patrick’s Cathedral.
  5. A middle Eastern motif
  6. Baby fronds suggesting new growth.
Here are some of the boys sporting their tattoos.
