This design is inspired by the Koru, a Maori symbol of strength, growth, nurturing and hope, drawn in turn from the characteristic shape of an unfurling fern frond. The motif of a spiral, or circles-within-circles, is also common to all the cultures of Oceania, meaning variously 'meeting place', or 'journey/passage' and more. The green colour scheme is a direct nod to greenstone/pounamu used for tools and jewellery by Maori; with an OpenStreetMap-based map of wellington etched into the surface. The OSGeo ribbon sits at the start/end of the spiral/journey, marking a place of transition and change. A generally accepted Maori name for the conference location is given prominence, in lieu of the exact dates.

It uses tints of green, meaning the design can be printed in two colours. It is also readily adaptable for different layouts (hexagon, text unrolled to the left or right or above or below). The map is also easily replaceable, enabling focus on different locations.
