Te Maumaharatanga is the name specially chosen for the ANZAC jersey, literally meaning ‘The Memorial’ specifically designed with our nation’s servicemen and women, fans, club and ANZAC heritage in mind. The jersey will be worn at the highly anticipated ANZAC Day match against the Gold Coast Titans at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday April 25th, 2015.
A donation from the sale of each jersey in both New Zealand and Australia will be going to the Fields of Remembrance Trust ($10 for an adults jersey, $5 for a childrens jersey), as a mark of respect for our past and current serving armed forces personnel.
The jersey design is centred on four figures who represent the four components of our military service, standing at the base of a monument featuring the words to the ‘Ode of Remembrance’. Behind them the New Zealand and Australian flags proudly face the monument, symbolising and acknowledging our unique history as both brothers-in-arms and as fierce rivals out on the sports field.
The warrior-like symbol of the mangopare (hammerhead shark) that features within the monument holds special meaning to our armed forces, representing courage, tenacity and determination, and pays respect to the Māori Battalion.
Both the kiwi and kangaroo feature prominently within the unique design, representing the eternal brotherhood and spirit of the ANZAC. Below, fields of green filled with poppies represent the Fields of Remembrance for the ANZACs who have fallen overseas; behind this poignant acknowledgement lays our mountains and our whenua (land) symbolising what they fought for.
Below the four figures is a rocky outcrop representing the unforgiving Gallipoli peninsula with crosses placed amongst the rocks to acknowledge the 44,000 Allies and 87,000 Ottoman soldiers that fell during the eight-month long campaign.
Each jersey comes with a small booklet acknowledging the donation made to the Fields of Remembrance Trust together with an overview of the Gallipoli campaign and the significance of Anzac Day.
