Guidance for a safe journey
The company’s name is inspired by the southern cross constellation and other guiding stars for their significance to some cultures in Papua New Guinea and many others across the pacific region that are appreciated as symbols that represent ‘guidance for a safe journey’. Stars were used as guiding lights by sailors during risky trading voyages, hence just the mere visibility of stars in the night sky instilled feelings of security and confidence in sailors.
In times gone by before Papua New Guinea gained independence, the Motu people, the traditional land-owners of Port Moresby (PNG’s capital city) used to go on annual trading expeditions to the Gulf of Papua (now Gulf Province). The Motu called these expeditions ‘Hiri’. The cultural significance of the Hiri voyages are commemorated in the Hiri Moale Festival each year in Port Moresby.
