New Zealand Decides On A New National Flag Emblem


12/15/2015


New Zealand holds voting session to finalise the possible national flag design which might replace the present one.



New Zealand – 15 December 2015 – The current national flag of New Zealand that represents the country will mostly become a history, while the country at present looks for a possible alternative emblem to hoist high in the sky.
 
The votes for replacing the current flag design narrowed down on two specimen, while one received the winning place featuring “a silver fern and red stars”, while the “referendum wining” one sports “blue and black Kyle Lockwood designed” background. The second place holder is a red and blue flag.
 
New Zealand held the voting session on the 12th of December 2015 to finalize the flag design and on the 14th of December 2015, all three specimens being, the present, the wining and second place holder flag specimens were displayed in Auckland.
 
However, in spite of the voting session, the administrator of the country still juggle with the question “whether enough people will rally behind” the new flag design to replace the current one. Consequently, the present flag continues to be the national representation of “patriotic symbol” for New Zealand.
 
The final outcome were announced from “a postal ballot”, whereby the design incorporating the silver fern, red stars on the “black and blue background, were displayed. Another session of national vote will be held in the month of March against the “current flag”. The “head-to-head” competition will decide on the final outcome.
 
There are similarities between the current flag design with that of the wining one, however, the latter does away with the “British Union Jack in favour of the fern”. The silver fern has become a “national symbol” for New Zealand sports teams which even includes the “beloved All Blacks rugby team”. Almost over “10,000 designs” were submitted “as they (New Zealand) contemplated a change in their national symbol”.
