Presentation of Northland Province

Northland is the long peninsula at the northernmost tip of the North Island, stretching for 150 miles northwards from the southernmost tip of Kaipara Harbour. It's largest city is Whangarei.

Rugby fan flag

[ Northland rugby flag ] image by James Dignan, 24 August 1997

I was watching a rugby match on TV between Auckland and Northland, two of New Zealand's provincial teams, and I noticed that unlike most teams, whose supporters wave flags in any odd combination of their team's colours, Northland's supporters were all flying the same flag, vertical 4:1:4 (approximately) light blue, white and very dark blue.
James Dignan, 24 August 1997

Sky blue (the Ukrainian flag type of blue) and red are the colours that are used in regional sports uniforms, particularly those of rugby.
Robbie Ellis, 10 March 1999

Northland, if I recall correctly, is rather sky blue and white.
James Dignan, 21 Mar 1999

It's possible they've changed their colours, but I know sky blue is the main colour.
James Dignan, 29 March 1999

My guess [to explain the dark blue stripe on the flag] is that they wear dark blue socks.
James Dignan, 6 May 1999

There are, however, no standardised designs for provincial flags.
James Dignan, 12 September 1996
