Individuals or organisations developing Tuia related commemorative activity are welcome to use the official Tuia - Encounters 250 logo.

The logo references waka hourua (double-hulled voyaging canoes) and tall ship rigging, Pacific binding, raranga (weaving), the shape of a hull and the inter-lacing of our dual heritage. The key font used in the logo ‘Bodoni’ was designed in the late 18th century and was seen at that time to embody the future and ‘the rational thinking of the Enlightenment’.

The logo acts as a signpost to the public that an initiative or activity is connected to the wider Tuia Encounters - 250 commemoration.

Please refer to the Tuia – Encounters 250 Logo Guidelines for an overview of how to use the Ministry's logo.

The Tuia - Encounters 250 logo is available in white, red and black. Click here to download the official files in png format as a zip document (1.99 MB).

Design files in eps format can be downloaded here.

The Ministry for Culture and Heritage reserves the right to ask individuals to remove the logo from their project if it is used in an inappropriate manner.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the use of the logo.
