All during the Olympics Games I kept getting reminded of how much I want to change the NZ Flag. It was near impossible to tell it apart from the Australian flag, as it went up a flagpole.
At least we are not the only ones who get confused. Sideswipe reports:
During a ceremony at Ku-ring-gai Council recently, his friends – an English family of five – had just received their Australian citizenship documentation and posed with the mayor for a photograph. “A helpful councillor came forward with a flag suggesting it would make a nice prop for the photograph,” he writes. The family agreed, but asked whether he had an Australian flag. “Oh my God,” said the councillor, “We’ve been using a New Zealand flag all night.”
One of us needs to change flags, as they are so similar. I bags us!
