The Koru is a symbol that represents both harmony and eternal movement. It also holds powerful meaning symbolising new life, growth, strength, and peace.

The Koru’s circular and spiral shape is based on the structure of the unfurling native New Zealand silver fern frond. Its continuous movement of both inner and outer coil represent movement through life and how life changes, yet stays the same. The inner coil of the Koru is said to represent the birthing of our young. As the frond grows to mature into an adult frond it flourishes, and germinates new fronds, depicting the cycle of life. The Koru’s balanced shape depicts stability and harmony through life’s challenges and pleasures, providing a powerful connection to both lineage and our own experiences.
