Our Region 8 patch clearly defines the countries represented in the region. With the RKMC emblem in the background, New Zealand is represented by a Kiwi holding a maori spear over the silver fern, and Australia is represented by a boxing kangaroo over a gum leaf and gum nuts. The Gum leaf and Silver fern also represents the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) spirit and they are the original symbols used when we honored and remembered our countries soldiers back in WW1. A tradition that is very much upheld and respected every year. The camaraderie, brotherhood and respect built between our 2 countries is centuries in the making and aligns perfectly with the fellowship and loyalty of the Red Knights Motorcycle Club worldwide.
