Brand UserRegional Identity - Central Otago ‘A World of Difference’
Creating a unique mark – the people of Central Otago people enjoy the most generous environmental footprint of all new Zealanders. A unique world like no other; a world of discovery, enterprise and magical lifestyles.
The ‘Brand’ represents the values and expressions that include land and people. This has been symbolised with the upper part of the circular form representing a solitary cloud whisked upward against a vast deep blue sky. The lower form represents both the landscape and the New Zealand native falcon, the Karearea. In symbolic language, the falcon is associated with noble natured people, strength, bravery, ingenuity and high spirits, evoking freedom and pride as it soars above the golden, contoured land. We too can soar here.
Central Otago celebrates a magnificent natural and historic wealth. A World of Difference.
