Tawa flies flags to celebrate vibrant community

Forty-three flags are now fluttering from power poles in Tawa, promoting local spirit and the community.

Tawa Business Group, Tawa Residents Association, and Tawa Community Board dreamed up the project to highlight the northern suburb community, and engaged locals to take the project from logo and flag design to completion over a two-year period.

Local talent was used to design, create, and install the flags across the suburb. The 43 flags were produced by Nexus Display Solutions Grenada, with Power Construction and Lighting Limited collaborating to handle the installation.

Tawa graphic design firm Digital Tree handled the creative design aspect, with Dieter Fourie taking lead on the ambitious and inclusive project.

Wellington City Council contributed $17,000 toward the cost of the project, and individuals who made a notable contribution to the project include Stephanie Knight and Stacey Richardson of the Tawa Residents Association, Judith Gray, Ann Woolston, and Tony Henderson-Newport of the Tawa Business Group, and Richard Herbert and Liz Langham of Tawa Community Board.
