Three of our Silver Fern Flag designs have topped a New Zealand Herald poll today.
The winner with 25% was the 'New Zealand Colours' Silver Fern Flag.
In second place at 23% was our Original Silver Fern Flag design.
Scoring third place with 10% was our Silver Fern Sports Flag.
These results show that if we were to update our flag, everyday New Zealanders are quite partial to our national symbol, the Silver Fern.
It's not surprising, as the Silver Fern is the most recognised symbol of New Zealand. For over a century the Silver Fern has been the emblem of our military and our sports men and women. The Silver Fern is used extensively as a symbol by Government, tourism, trade organisations and commercial brands. it's on our money, it's on our passports, it even appears on our war medals and is carved into the headstones of our fallen warriors.
The silver fern is our symbol, let's put it on our flag.
