Koru, Icon of New Zealand. 'Koru' is the Maori word for the new unfurling fern frond.

Koru - The unfolding spiral tipped shoots of the New Zealand silver fern plant become new fern fronds. Thus the reference to new life or a new start. Especially in Maori culture, these Koru have a strong symbolical meaning.
