Rima: Ponga (Silver Fern)

This New Zealand symbol is considered a badge of honour by the people, products and services of our country that carry it.

It is said that Māori hunters and warriors used the silver underside of the fern leaves to find their way home. When bent over, the fronds would catch the moonlight and illuminate a path through the forest.

It has been the symbol of the All Blacks since the 1880s and is now proudly worn by all of our top elite athletes at age grade and National level. Wearing the Silver Fern is synonymous with success, hard work and achievement.
