Cook Islands Health Network Logo Design

The CIHNA logo depicts a stylized "tipani" frangipani, a flower of distinction back home in the Cook Islands. The tipani and its fragrance signifies health and wellbeing. The five petals represents the 5 core holistic elements integral to the people of the Cook Islands: namely physical well being, spirituality, culture and identity, family and mental and emotional well being. The petals also depict a group of people in a circle facing outwards with arms reaching out. This illustrates CIHNAs commitment to building people and healthy communities through active partnerships (ora'anga meitaki na roto i te akamatutuanga e te taokotaianga o te iti tangata). The brown colour scheme represents the fertile soil of home and symbolizes the richness of the Cook Islands culture and its people.
