NZEA Logo

The "Fluid Drop" was designed by Malcolm Harding of Hawera and has been incorporated on all Association publications, stationary, cuff links, and badges since 1980.

The design encompasses many aspects of the art and science of embalming, and symbolises the modern practice of embalming. Even given our modern age, the logo also recognises the ancient origins of embalming.

  • The Pyramid - signifies the embalmers of ancient cultures
