Michael Smythe Design I

Michael Smythe has other colour variants of this - black and white, and green and blue. I think this design will work well as a flag. I can imagine it being almost hypnotic in the wind. It's certainly identifiable in small scale, at least in this colour scheme of red and black.

I really like this one, but some people may find it "too Maori" (possibly?). It's very striking, I think I like it in the green, best.

This is very clearly Maori art, the flag being devoid of any actual flag design to represent a nation. That said it is striking, but it also looks like a corporate design for a kitchen/gift shop. If anything it would make a good Provincial flag for Canterbury. 3/10.
