Waipu (District)
  • Notes: This tartan was designed by Waipu residents and Nova Scotian descendents to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the arrival of the Nova Scotian settlers to Waipu, New Zealand. It was accompanied by a lengthy poem of explanation - unfortunately too lengthy for inclusion here but it has been stored in the relevant archives. The seven colours in the tartan are for the 7 ships that anchored out beyond the Waipu sand. The green is for the forest and land that the settlers first saw; the red is from the MacFarlane and the yellow and black commemorate the Rev. Norman MacLeod who was the leader of the settlers.
