In Christchurch the Network group uses the image of a Cabbage Tree with the following description:
Te Kōuka, the cabbage tree, is historically, a significant tree for Canterbury. Local Maori valued its presence as a land mark to identify routes across the vast Canterbury Plains. The new shoots provided protein to sustain the people as kumara were near impossible to grow. The growth pattern of Te Kōuka reflects the concept of connectedness.
