Regional council

Bay of Plenty Regional Council is the administrative body responsible for overseeing regional land use, environmental management and civil defence in the Bay of Plenty Region, in New Zealand's North Island. The seat of the regional council is Whakatāne, the two main cities are Tauranga and Rotorua. The region has 348,000 inhabitants on 12,231 kmē.

The current flag is a banner made after the landscape represented on the logo: light blue sky with a stylized sun at the upper fly, green hill and plain, sea in two shades of blue and white waves. The name of the council in white and in blue (maori part) is written at the lower part of the flag.
