Ia ora na (Hello)

Tipanie flower (Frangipanier in French). Ti means flower in the Tahitian language. Originally from Antilles, this flower was brought here in 1852. Together with the Ti'are Tahiti, it represents the land of Tahiti and its people. While the Tipanie grows very easily also in arid areas, the Tiare Tahiti needs the constant help of the local farmers.

Nana! (Bye!)
