Can’t argue with Kiwiblogger David Farrar’s choice of alternative flag on last night’s Backbenchers. (Click on part 2 of the video – it’s near the start.)
David had told me he was going to be doing the Soapbox spot about flags, and asked me if I could chase down the old and new Canadian flags – to show the improvement.
But he gave me no clue that he was planning to use the above design of Kenneth’s and mine as his preferred NZ flag.
His point was how it would make a better choice than the tino rangatiratanga flag because of the non-racial fern.
It got a pretty good reaction from the audience too, even if one guy did say it looked like the Nike logo :-).
However, my own poll of six Ansell-Wang fern flags currently has this one coming fourth.
If you’re in the voting mood, do take part in my other poll comparing four different styles of fern.
Good also to see Monday’s Herald proclaiming Silver Fern design preferred choice for new NZ flag.
The momentum is running my way on two issues at the moment: for flag change and away from climate change!
