Designs for NZ flags that I've created and some alternatives.
I'm not a republican by the way - I'm just not very excited about our flag. The flag is not for past New Zealanders or armies of yesterday. It is for kiwis of today and the armies of today that not only fight for New Zealand on battlefields but also in boardrooms, studios and laboratories. A flag is our advertisement to the world. A defaced British ensign doesn't quite do us justice I feel.
That said, I'd rather keep our flag than adopt the 'wrong' flag. Funky modern art designs like the one supported by nzflag.com to me is a wrong flag. Flags where all of the symbolism needs to be explained is also the wrong flag.
On this blog I've proposed designs of my own and commented on some other designs that are doing the rounds on the interweb.
