we should change the flag because people might think that we are Australia. Also we are not apart of the british culture, the England culture, the Irish culture and the Scottish culture. The old flag has the union jack which represents the british empire that is why I want to change the flag.
On the new flag there is the silver fern which has been apart of our history and identity for many years and is an internationally recognized as a symbol of new zealand. The silver fern represents the silver fern which is a netball team the all blacks which is a rugby team and the black caps which is a cricket team. The blue represents the clear skies and the pacific ocean. The black has become recognized as a national color and is associated with our many achievements internationally
