We are pleased to announce that five of our flag designs have been short-listed by the Government's Flag Consideration Project.
Recent polling suggests that the alternative flag most New Zealanders would choose, is a flag containing the silver fern, the fern symbol resonates with many New Zealanders, including Olympian Mahe Drysdale, who has recently expressed his preference for one of our silver fern flag designs containing the silver fern and Southern Cross.
Like the maple leaf to Canada, the silver fern ‘screams New Zealand’, and it's not just a mere sports symbol. In far off fields lie our soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice, forever memorialised under the silver fern.
The silver fern is on our army and navy logos, our firefighter, police and sportspersons uniforms, it's on our money, it's on our passports, it's on our national airliners, and soon our fern will be on New Zealand rockets sending satellites into space, it's our national symbol and it's time we put it on our flag.
