The Koru, represents the fern frond as it opens bringing new life and purity to the world. It also represents peace, tranquility and spirituality, along with a strong sense of regrowth or new beginnings. It is also often associated with nurturing so when interlocked with others is frequently used to represent the strength and purity of a loving relationship within a family. The Koru is sometimes intertwined with other forms such as twists and matau, or hook, to tell a very special and powerful story.
