On February 6, 1840, a joint ratification of the Treaty of Waitangi by representatives of Great Britain and Maori leaders from the New Zealand United Tribes Union was held in a temporarily pitched tent with the name “accord building” in the Waitangi district of the New Zealand city of Paihia.

By state agreement, New Zealand officially acquired the status of a colony and thus became part of the British Empire.

This date is considered the “birthday” of modern New Zealand, and February 6 is celebrated as the country's national holiday - Waitangi Day.
