Koru on maoori sõna spiraalse kujundi kohta, mis põhineb võrsuva sõnajala kujul ja sümboliseerib uut algust, kasvu, igavest liikumist ja algpunkti tagasi jõudmist. Sellel sümbolil on tähtis osa maoori kunstis.

@Jeff: You are right about the "All Blacks", of course... When I first saw them performing "Haka" I didn't know, that once I have to do it myself :)
