Yeah, I voted the day I got the papers.

Interesting you picked a flag with a Kiwi on it.
Local media company is doing research in to how New Zealanders feel about common symbols of New Zealand and the Kiwi is on top.
Interestingly not a lot of Kiwis were used in the flags submitted. Only 9%.
I think it would be great on a flag and may just work on one.

The current flag.
In the hope that we can then do it properly now that there are a lot more organisations etc. set up committed to change and doing it right.
If we can find the right flag then we can have something to be proud of.

Aargh, the Delaveau design is dreadful - like some central Asian stan flag! Afraid to say that the Bruno and Ododobe designs are also simply awful.
Sorry guys.
Weird to think the kiwis are probably gonna vote to keep the colonial flag - surely anything's better than that?

Don't you think that the opportunity to change flag will not come before ... one half century?

Not really. Just because it is an option does not mean it is the right option. The current flag still has enough meaning for New Zealanders to warrant taking time and getting it right.

Definitely. This cock up of a process has done one good thing for the cause. It has polarised people and opinions about flags. I think all of the political parties have said they are for change and a number of interest groups advocating change have been set up so there will be a change. I would say within ten years. Worth it to get it right.

No offence taken. Although constructive criticism would be more helpful. I'd be happy to return the favor on any flag that you post.
