alcune cose a da Kiwis / some Kiwis’ stuff

beretta in new zeland

Kiwis è un nomignolo utilizzato per indicare la popolazione della Nuova ZelandaInizialmente utilizzato per indicare i militari neozelandesi durante la seconda guerra boera nonché durante la prima guerra mondiale, kiwis fu poi usato per indicare la popolazione neozelandese tutta. La parola viene usata anche in senso autoreferenziale, perdendo quindi ogni valenza negativa.

Kiwi is the nickname used internationally for people from New Zealand, as well as being a relatively common self-reference. The name derives from the kiwi, aflightless bird, which is native to, and the national symbol of, New Zealand. Unlike many demographic labels, its usage is not considered offensive; it is generally viewed as a symbol of pride and endearment for the people of New Zealand.
