Fly the Flag competition 2008
As a part of the 5 days of Tino and a follow up to last years Fly that Flag competition we are running the competition again for the most creative display of the Tino Rangatiratanga flag.
This year we are also asking people to fly Te Mana Motuhake o Tuhoe flags in solidarity with the people of Te Urewera and those people effected by the October 15 raids.
Our panel of esteemed judges will pick a winner to be announced on the Aocafe www.aocafe.com
To celebrate '5 days of tino', fly the tino rangatiratanga flag in your area. Approach your local kura, kohanga, businesses, local council etc asking them to share their local flag poles with Maori. Let them know about the positives of building the relationship with tangata whenua.
Think about adopting local flag poles for the tino flag, and other high profile places in your area the flag can fly from. Even a sticker for your car will support the kaupapa.
The flag symbolises the struggle for Maori self-determination and embodies the hopes we have for future generations as a thriving indigenous nation.
