Change the NZ Flag

This is the site of the NZFlag.com Trust - a Trust established to promote debate about New Zealand's national identity and, in particular, about New Zealand's flag. We believe that the time has come for New Zealanders to choose a flag which represents New Zealanders as we see ourselves today - to respect and reflect our history as a nation, to represent us to others as we would we would like them to see us and, importantly, to carry us forward with our hopes and aspirations for New Zealand's future.

That was a New Zealand where most Europeans called England the homeland, and most Maori were forbidden to speak their language at school. We've moved on from that, and I think the symbol that we use to represent our country, our people and our culture should move on too.
