Iconic Aotearoa

From ICYMI, 4:00 pm on 8 July 2022

Across the world, different countries have different objects, foods, animals and people that have become iconic to them.

In New Zealand, we call this Kiwiana. Our icons are made up of all the weird and wonderful quirky things from years gone by that contribute to our nation's pop culture.

From the Silver Fern to pavlova, the Buzzy Bee to L&P, let’s take a look at Iconic Aotearoa!
