what are the other options that you are talking about? you only show one pic, maybe another is in order here.... although i do think it looks cool, it just reminds me of those social science classes that i had in elementary school where we had to reproduce a drawing of the Canadian Flag...that was tough, but the swirly would be harder too! lol, i dunno, what ever i guess

Personally out of the ones on the website, I like the New Southern Cross design - simple and distinctive - I can't think of another country with a flag quite like that.

Although I am not sure about changing the flag, is there to be a vote or anything about it?

I agree with the changing of the design, and maybe not so much in colors. The flag for some reason comes off as a logo, or extremely modern and artsy. It's cool though, but I think a simpler flag would probably serve best.

Hmm, If people feel the flag dose not represent the country, they should change it.

We have people talking about doing the same here, but i feel very attached to the flag.

this is the design that the creators of the petition want, it is simple, but i think it looks like a pirate flag, also too close to supporters flags for the all blacks rugby team (not all of us like rugby )


another flag that i like is this one;

this is the flag of "tino rangatirotanga" (say it as it's spelt) but as this represents something very divisive here in NZ, (maori self rule) it won't be adopted

the only way the NZ flag can be changed is after a binding referendum, and the petition is the first step towards that.

Yes, I think you should have your own flag without the Union Jack in the canton, Australia too for that matter. I like the Mike Lloyd design. Proper Moari colors while still keeping the Southern Cross stars in red so long identified with New Zealand. The fern would also salve the feelings of the veterans who had fought for the old flag. One only has to look at the WWI gravestone at http://www.nzflag.com/gallery.cfm to see that that symbol is already embraced by them.

That looks very nice! Eye catching.

I think the Southern Cross MUST be kept somewhere because that is the part of the current flag that really represents traditional New Zealand.

I kinda have an idea of what a nice flag might look like.

Background is a not too dark green. With a branch with leaves coming out in a light relaxing color.
