Usually tucked away in a clubhouse drawer, the club flag comes out to fly on opening days, tournaments and other special occasions.
The flag was made in 1997 for the club's 75th anniversary celebrations. To find a suitable flag, school teacher Len Lea, a committee member at the time, ran a flag design competition for his Naenae College 7th form graphics class. In anticipation, a new flagpole engineered and donated by club member Cor van Dyk's late husband, Ari, was then attached to the southern end of the clubhouse.
The students worked away and all the designs were submitted to the Jubilee Committee - the group running the anniversary celebrations. The Jubilee Committee members were very pleased with the designs and held an afternoon tea for the students, at which Milan Patel was announced as the winner. He explained that the flying W at the heart of the flag not only stands for our name but also represents the surrounding hills and the river running by, and the space under the flying W is meant to resemble the blades of grass of a croquet lawn.
