A very special flagpole has been relocated to Stevenson Reserve on Cook Street in Howick.

Howick Local Board chair Damian Light said, “The new site on the crest of Stevenson Reserve will ensure that this unique piece of local history is once again available for the public to enjoy.

“The Howick Local Board is pleased to report that the historic naval rig flagpole that once stood at 34 Moore Street is now installed in Stevenson Reserve.”

In September 2022, the board voted to protect the flagpole by removing it from the old Borough Council site and placing it into storage until it could be installed in its new location.

“After we approved the required funding in July 2023, council staff worked to arrange the relevant construction and installation,” Light said.
