Change the NZ Flag

This is the site of the NZFlag.com Trust - a Trust established to promote debate about New Zealand's national identity and, in particular, about New Zealand's flag. We believe that the time has come for New Zealanders to choose a flag which represents New Zealanders as we see ourselves today - to respect and reflect our history as a nation, to represent us to others as we would we would like them to see us and, importantly, to carry us forward with our hopes and aspirations for New Zealand's future.

Why Change?

Julie Stout, Architect
Even as a child I always thought that the New Zealand flag we were supposed to be emotional about was a relic left over from a previous colonial era. We were way past that surely -someone had just forgotten to change it. Now 40 years on, it staggers me that this young independent Pacific nation still allows the Union Jack to dominate us. I have since sailed many seas but never flew our country's flag out of embarrassment. That is a sad indictment. We need to get our sense of our own identity back in our flag. And let's do it now. I certainly don't want to die under the present flag! I strongly support the distinctive black and white silver fern flag, not as stylized as you have shown, but it is a good starting point to begin the debate.

Does it portray the image we want to give of New Zealand internationally? Most importantly, does it inspire us?
