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.

Why Change?

Dick Tayler, Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist
Representing your country is something special for all sports people. It is a time which you never forget. Interestingly, when I won the 10,000m athletics gold medal at the 1974 Christchurch Commonwealth Games, it was not seeing the nation's flag hoisted high that inspired me. I was a proud Kiwi, and I was proud to wear the silver fern. In my view the silver fern we wore captured our nation's identity perfectly - it has strong historic meaning for this country and also could take us proudly into the future.

My preference is for New Zealanders to choose an internationally recognisable symbol of New Zealand - such as the fern or the kiwi - for our flag, rather than continue with the current ensign.

Does it portray the image we want to give of New Zealand internationally? Most importantly, does it inspire us?
