    Apparently the new Zealand government has nothing better to do with its time or money.
    The only thing that concerns them is whether the flag should be changed
    If you could choose one of the forty which one would you choose
    I have to choose either one of these or stick with the flag we have here now

    I should have done this ages ago and got you all too design new flags that I could have submitted
    to the committee
    DT could have come up with flags better than most of this lot

    here is what we have now

    A list of 40 possible alternative flags, chosen from 10,000

    The Flag Consideration Panel has announced 40 possible flag alternatives - including these.
    The process to choose what could be New Zealand's new flag has narrowed to 40 options.
    On Monday afternoon the Flag Consideration Panel released a "long list" of 40 designs, chosen from more than 10,000 options submitted by the public.

    The list is dominated by designs prominently featuring ferns, koru and stars. It does not include some of the more humorous designs, such as the kiwi farting a rainbow or flags referencing blowing on pies.
    Chairman John Burrows said he and his colleagues had investigated every submission, but the 40 selected designs had been chosen unanimously.
    "In reviewing alternatives, we were guided that a potential new flag should unmistakably be from New Zealand and celebrate us as a progressive, inclusive nation that is connected to its environment, and has a sense of its past and vision for its future," Burrows said in a statement.
    "The panel has made its preliminary selection of flag designs that it believes best represent the range of suggestions it has received. It is important that those designs are timeless, can work in a variety of contexts, are simple, uncluttered, balanced and have good contrast."
    The chosen 40 will now be subject to further scrutiny, including whether any breach intellectual property law.
    In mid-September the panel is expected to announce four of them to be subject to a national referendum. The most popular design will then go head-to-head with the current flag in another referendum in March 2016.
    Prime Minister John Key favours changing the flag, claiming the existing design is often mistaken for Australia's. Although the cost of deciding whether to change the flag - up to $26 million - has come under fire, Key claimed recently that a new design would be "worth billions" to New Zealand.

    change the top left corner by all means
    seems we need to change to something that is more representative of our pacific heritage rather than our british one
    most of the designs imho are rubbish
    in ten years the biggest minority will be asian
    should we change it again to represent them
    26 mill every 10 years seems a bargain..not

    Expand the bit in the top left hand corner of the existing flag so it covers the whole thing, thereby creating a nice star-like pattern that is oddly, not quite symmetrical.

    I really like the idea of the Silver Fern on the plain black background. The simple design is easily remembered and with the Canadian flag would be one of the most recognisable flags and it would be without any racial overtones. I only wish our govt could see its way to introduce a proper Australian flag.

    I actually think the current flag makes NZ like the UK's bitch. Colonialism and the Empire are dead. Do your own thing and forge your own proper identity, says I. To my ignorant and uncultured eye, the plain white leaf on a black background is best.
