I guess to make the simplified fern look less like a garden trowel (or a feather for that matter), a koru spiral could be incorporated into the tip?
See picture below.

I found myself wondering, what effect a change in the national flag might have on some of the other flags in use in New Zealand. So I had a little sketch. Firstly, as a reminder, here are various current NZ flags:

The third:

For this one, I thought a new RNZAF roundel was quite probable, given the state flag was no longer red, white, and blue.

I find that, while I prefer the red-and-blue fern state flag to the black-and-blue version, I much prefer my ensigns for the latter.

New design added to the final four - so, now the final five!
New design has been dubbed the 'nazi sentry box stripes'!

Way worse than any of the final 4, IMHO
