Voting starts today. For those interested here is how I will be voting in the first referendum:
For the last two weeks I was preferring the black, blue and white fern, as black is our de facto national colour. But it was seeing the flags all flying outside the Westpac stadium that swung me back towards this one. The black looks better on a screen, but the red better in real life – and stands out more on darker days.
My very close second choice.
Red Peak has grown on me, and if it wins the first referendum I’d vote for it over the current flag.
Doesn’t do a lot for me. A pity the simple silver fern on black design was not chosen. I understand the concern ISIS has a black flag also, but I still love the simplicity of it. This design though just doesn’t quite work for me. If it won, would probably vote for the current flag to remain.
Sorry Koru. Someone has to be 5th.
