    CW helps little NZ pick it's new flag

    It has recently come to my attention that New Zealand's currently in the process of picking it's new flag.

    While their prideful reluctance to admit to needing outside assistance in the process is admirable, it is only right that we give those plucky little folks a helping hand.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    There is no way I am getting behind a NZ flag thread after my thread has repeatedly been ignored by noted NZ guy James.

    But seriously I like this one..

    Too many people lobbying against black flags for various historical reasons.

    I find the fern-based designs a bit to complex/modern for a national flag. To me they look more like corporate logo material.

    This is my favourite on the shortlist

    Looks like we are from the middle east if we go with that flag. No basis for that comment. Just my impression.

    The silent majority would want some type of Maori nod of the head such as a Koru, or the fern as it has been our emblem for many years.

    Nah it looks like an islander nation flag. Particularly micronesia or solomon islands.

    The one I would like is just the most simple Gordon Walters Koru design.

    Yeah this may not end well if there isn't a stand out choice.

    When Canada picked its flag - some 12 year old submitted the entry of the maple leaf and it wowed everyone immediately.

    There were about 1000 other entries including those by professional graphic designers.

    The plan seems to be to short-list four from the forty, then pick one and pit it against the current flag. So if none of them are any good (IMO there's too much of a sameness to them all), the incumbent carries on.

    Oh okay, I was just picking on looks without factoring in history, politics.

    I would lobby against your green (if I had a sudden urge to start lobbying), I know the countryside is green, but it isn't the colour I think of for NZ at all.
