The logo comprises a Dolphin and Crown and an Anchor on a blue ground.. Heraldry buffs will have a "proper" way to describe these symbols!

The motto "Union is Strength" reflects the turbulent past of the Harbour Board I think - it grew out of necessity but it had a difficult passage!

The most comprehensive and beautiful book about Wellington Harbour is WELLINGTON HARBOUR by David Johnson ISBN 0 9583498 00 and this link http://www.wellington.govt.nz/services/heritage/pdfs/oldshorelinetrail.pdf will take you to an interesting 70 page guide to the harbour.
