Friedrich Hundertwasser Design

This flag has an odd aspect ratio. The first time I saw it I didn't much care for it, but it's one of those flags that can grow on me I think. It looks fresh and will stand out even on a windless day outside the UN. It also works well in a small size.

Like you, I didn't care for this flag either, but in the intervening years seeing the (sometimes awful) alternatives being promoted I find myself quite liking it now.

I could just see this hanging at a State function; the giant penis that it would be seen to the rest of the world. We'd be the butt of all manner of jokes. The thing that most surprises me about this flag is how it is held up as a genuine contender for a new NZ flag, when it is as appalling as it is. Poor colors, agenda images, totally uninspiring, doesn't serve what we would do with other civic flags. 0/10. The artist is probably having a laugh about people praising his flag, because it was meant as a joke, right?
