Tino rangatiratanga flag: the national Māori flag (3 o 3)

Tino rangatiratanga flag: the national Māori flag

In December 2009, cabinet (the decision-making body of executive government) recognised the tino rangatiratanga flag (seen at left) as the national Māori flag of New Zealand. It was chosen after a public consultation process. The tino rangatiratanga flag has no official status but can complement the New Zealand flag on days of national significance. Here, Parliament's messengers and support-services team leader Euan McCade prepares the tino rangatiratanga and New Zealand flags for hoisting at Parliament on Waitangi Day in 2010.
