Wiremu Kingi Te Awe Awe with the flag, a taonga of the Rangitane people, presented to them by the New Zealand Government in recognition of their military service in Taranaki during the years 1866 to 1869. Emblazoned on to the flag is the Union Jack and "Tanenuiarangi", which is the full name of the ancestor from whom the people are descended. The flag has been flown in The Square of Palmerston North, on three occasions: at the unveiling of Te Peeti Te Awe Awe statue in 1907; during the civic welcome to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales in 1920; during the civic welcome of Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu, the Maori Quee,n in 1971.
