The fish hook is a symbol of prosperity, and it´s made here by the union of a hammerhead shark (for tenacity and determination), and of a manaia (for protection and good fortune).

The hammerhead shark includes a man and spearheads for the warrior, and the tail has an octopus tentacle for tenacity and adaptability.

The manaia has waves for change, leading on top to a koru that turns into a sun to symbolize a new beginning that brings success and joy.
