Maybe not

flag 07

A reader has sent in this design for a new flag. It’s, umm, very memorable. He explains it represents NZ with:

  • Mountains to the sea
  • Fertile land
  • Birds
  • Happy people
  • Beaches
  • Fish

Would be amusing to have as our flag just for the looks at Olympic Games when it goes up the flagpole for a medal!

    Plus of course pink, symbolising compulsory homosexualism.

    We should all vote for it and then see how fast the politicians back track on the idea of a new flag.

    Not a triffid, James.

    One of Lovecraft’s Elder Things.

    Clearly being worshipped by enslaved humans.

    I like it. The best part is the wind turbine which is about to chop up a couple of careless birds, as wind turbines are prone to do. The people on the ground are waving their arms at the birds, frantically shouting “watch out birds, don’t fly in to that Green bird killing machine”.

    Why do flag designers think New Zealand is the only country in the world that has these things?

    You couldn’t use that flag when the Olympics are in Russia. There are no gays in Russia. Therefore you cannot have a gay flag in Russia.

    Very naieve ……makes no connection to the disconnect from Britian and the queen. Which is the obvious distinction of not having a Union Jack. Obviously, the ideal is just to have the Southern Cross minus Union Jack

    Best one I have seen so far

    I was going to suggest one with JK
    with a golf club stuck in or protruding from an orifice
    maybe a bit rude and dis respectful

    But that will do

    I agree with WB. If the problem with the present flag is the presence of the Union Jack, then simply take it out. Then we are left with a Southern Cross. Simple, elegant, non-racial. Most other designs are just too “busy” and come across like a corporate logo, patchwork quilt or a high school art class project.

    They want the Union Jack off because their real intention is to exterminate white people

    they want white people DEAD and gone

    That is the real program
    and it is a global one

    This is kind of what they really think (it is a bit mild and intellectual)

    http://racetraitor.org/

    But really the real racists want you exterminated and they work day and night using one method or another

    It is all about apologising for your/our very existence
    how dare we bring head hunting people out of the stone age

    and that is what taking the Union Jack off that
    and making NZ more palatable for Chinese Communists

    They lie about whiteness not being about skin – but

    Their vision is really an expansion of the Third World

    JUST LOOK AROUND

    treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity

    And that is their Code

    What they put to record is bad enough but what they think and how they act is worse

    As if all the Violent Racism Aimed at White people in NZ is not bad enough now

    JUST wait
