The 20 Best Designs For The New New Zealand Flag

We truly are a talented country...

Posted on

New Zealand recently began the long process of selecting a new flag, this of course means that new designs must be submitted. The most exciting thing about this is that anyone - yes, ANYONE - can submit a design.

Here are just a few of the best...

1. "Woolly or wont he"

Michael Tuffin / Via govt.nz

This is great... it's got sheep (our unofficial national emblem), and a star. Now all it needs is Frodo and to be the actual shape of a flag!

4. "United 'State" of New Zealand version 2"

Nigel Gapper / Via govt.nz

A lot of people want us to distance our nation from the British colony image our current flag has, clearly they should all want us to have this flag because well.... it's not very British...

Also, what did version 1 look like?

16. "MOA FLAG"

Max Williams / Via govt.nz

It may be extinct, but the Moa is still one of the most relevant birds in our nation's history. It seems only fair that it takes pride of place on the flag over anything else, right?

17. "Long White Cloud With Silver Lining"

Tessa Walta / Via govt.nz

Is she saying that our country is kinda shit, but there's a little bit of goodness surrounding all the bad? Thanks Tessa!

18. "Clean Green Kiwiana"

Toko Ma / Via govt.nz

This one is very interesting, it represents a lot about our country;

The growing rate of ACC claims due to injured legs in Kiwi, the little known secret that Kiwi can grow tree's out of their bodies, and our very low key banana growing population.

20. "Te Pepe"

David Astill / Via govt.nz

This is the one. Because in this day and age, it's pointless to not create a flag that isn't a meme...

This also gets bonus points for incorporating the entirety of the flag that we are trying to change.
