New Zealand flag [re]design concepts

Why New Zealand is considering a new flag

“The current flag was adopted in 1902 and since the 1960s New Zealanders have been debating whether it should be replaced. Suggestions for alternative flag designs have been put forward from time to time, but until now there has never been an official public discussion to consider the flag. By law, the flag can be changed by a simple majority of Parliament. However, the Government’s view is that decisions on the flag should be made by all New Zealanders eligible to vote. The Flag Consideration Panel will narrow it down to a shortlist of alternative designs that reflect the views of the public.”

New Zealand – What do I stand for…

I stand for respecting New Zealand’s rich cultural heritage and traditions, and embracing freedom and equality. I stand for a bright future all Kiwi’s can be truly proud of, together as one. I stand for New Zealand. [Mike Archer]
