So, the Flag Consideration Panel has released the 40 new designs available for an NZ flag, should Kiwi’s decide that a new flag is wanted. No surprises really, that many, if not most, have the silver fern included, only one contains a stylized Union Jack from our current flag However, does that make us look like we all play rugby or netball for New Zealand?
Surprisingly a number of the designs chosen were created by the same people, and were just different colour variations of the same design. Speaking of colour, there isn’t much to choose from other than black, blue, red, green or white. There are no bright, new colours to symbolise what could be a new beginning in New Zealand’s future.
But what do YOU think? Which option do you like? Do you think we even need a new flag? Or would the money be better spent on something or someone else in NZ? The important thing is that you have your say, so remember to take part in the referendum that will be happening in NZ towards the end of the year.
