The Mataura Ensign, named after the Scottish newspaper, the Northern Ensign, was first produced in Gore (in Southland) on the 10 May 1878. The early years of the paper had a strong literary flavour including regular articles from 'Uncle Phil' who encouraged children to write well. The paper is still published daily today as the Ensign.
