From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 9 August 2019

A 160-year-old flag, from the time of the first Māori King, Pōtatau Te Wherowhero, has been returned to the Kīngitanga by the Anglican Church.

The Anglican Diocese officially signed over ownership to the Kīngitanga on Thursday, after forgetting they had it for 90 years.

Eden More was at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell for the ceremony.
