This is a little bit embarrassing. Our current Prime minister wants to change our country's flag. I don't think it will happen but they've decided to spend $27mill on a referendum without even asking if NZers want a new flag.

 

These are the 5 options:
 

Silver-fern-black-white-and-blue-hero.jp

 

Silver-fern-red-white-and-blue-hero.jpg

 

Koru-black-hero.jpg

 

Black-and-white-fern-hero-v2.jpg

 

 

 

The Fifth option came about because everyone thought the first 4 were a bit shit.

I'm pretty confident there wont be a change from the current flag, but out of interest which do you prefer?

 

PS. $27mill is a lot of moneys for a little county to spend on something so trivial when we have a lot families living under 'the poverty line'. Our total population is 4 million peeps. That money could go to much better use - especially considering is unlikely the flag will actually change.

Is one of the options in the referendum to keep the old one?

There will be 2 referendums:

 

The first is to choose from the 5 options

The second is to choose between the current flag and the winner of the 5

Sounds overly complicated. Would have been easier to just put the old flag in the first referendum and let the one with the most votes win.

Inorite? The whole thing is ridiculous and clearly set up as part of, or a diversion from, the government buying into the Trans-pacific partnership agreement without consultation with NZers.

I'm pretty sure John Oliver already covered this.

 

 

Also, they should just give everyone in the country a couple million dollars, save the rest, and choose whatever flag they want because no one will care when they're all millionaires.

I agree with Em and Sixy but to be fair I have no idea what the current one even is. 


My anger is a form of madness
And so I'd rather have hope than sadness

The current one is pretty much the same as Australia's, which is why they're having a problem.

Because their prime minister is too busy being a racist bastard to bother changing the flag.

the whole thing smacks of a populist distraction from the limpness of a weak regime...

 

...but on the other hand a black and white flag with a wave on it would be cool as fuck
