With the new Rainbow Warrior coming we got to thinking about her place in New Zealand history and about what makes us proud to be from this little nation at the far end of the world.

With some help from Perendale Productions we made this short video to embody just some of the events and people through history who have defined us and made their mark on our world.

As the year comes to an end, we hope this video will also make you feel happy and proud, and prompt us all to reflect on the sort of country we want to be into the future and how together we can write the next chapter in the story of New Zealand.
