History of the silver fern The Silver Fern is one of New Zealand's most recognised, long-standing, and respected national symbols. Since the late 19 th Century our fern has been worn with pride by our sports teams, with honour by our soldiers and used to represent our country all over the world. The silver fern has a long history of human use that isn't limited to looking pretty in the garden. The Maori, the native people of New Zealand, ate the pith of the starch-rich stems, as well as Silver fern is NZ history Further to Silver fern emblem used in Boer War that shows that the silver fern has been a significant military emblem for over a hundred years (since the 1899/1902 Boer War) here are more examples of it’s use. The silver fern also appears in the identities of many of New Zealand’s sports teams, including the national soccer (“football”) team, notably called the All Whites. The All Blacks in 1905 The facts around origins of the team name are fluid at best. This stationary set emblazoned with the silver fern and kiwi was distributed to New Zealanders on the Western Front.  This example belonged to Hugh Anderson Thompson who embarked with the 29th Reinforcements on 13th August 1917.    At this time some military vehicles such as ambulances and staff cars were also marked with the silver fern. According to Māori legend, the silver fern once lived in the sea. It was asked to come and live in the forest to play a significant role in guiding the Māori people. Māori hunters and warriors used the silver underside of the fern leaves to find their way home. When bent over, the fronds would catch the moonlight and illuminate a path through the forest. The silver fern does have deep historical roots. Perhaps our modern addiction to mass consumerism, and commercial symbolism, blinds us from seeing the silver fern in its real historical context. The fern’s appearance as a national symbol goes back to the 1880s, when Pakeha decided that they wanted to be New Zealanders, after all. Census figures in 1886 showed that native-born Pakeha now exceeded 'Europeans' living here but born overseas.

Copyright 2020 Netball  The silver fern has been accepted as a symbol of New Zealand’s national identity since the 1880s. To Māori, the elegant shape of the fronds stood for strength, stubborn resistance, and enduring power. To Pākehā (New Zealanders of non-Māori descent), the fern symbolised their sense of attachment to their homeland. Arriving relatively late in New Zealand's history during the Pliocene epoch (around 5.0–1.8 million years ago), the silver fern occurs on the main islands of New Zealand—although absent from the west and south regions of the South Island —and on the Chatham Islands to the east. Its primary habitat is subcanopy areas of drier forests and in open scrub, although it is occasionally found on bush margins and in more open areas, and has been recorded from amongst rushes in a dune slack.
