Howdy.

As I already posted it somewhere, New-Zealand is about to get a new flag.
I learned this from my niece recently.
I don't know who decided this, if it's the dream of the majority or a short minority, if something was voted.
That's true that the inhabitants of these territories of the Commonwealth don't like much to be "subjets" of Queen Elizabeth II, to have a Prime Minister only and never receive a visit of the Queen (William and his family went to Australia a few months ago).

As you can read below, some want to keep the flag.
This text is a kind of poem with its short lines but only 2 lines out of 4 are rhyming.  scratch

Here's my niece's proposal as the new flag.

A favorite flag from New-Zealanders seems to be displayed here Silver Fern (Red,White & Blue) (long list)
Designed by: Kyle Lockwood from Wellington


The long list
Flag design gallery

NB: the last 2 links show Web addresses from the government, so it seems to be official.

Hi everyone,
Last vote...

I ♥ New Zealand


One of these four designs could be our new flag. Yeah? Or Nah?

The top right one would have the same 3 colors as several flags: US, UK, France...
