This is loosely based on the Greenland flag design. Black is our national colour. The other colours symbolise natural New Zealand, green for the land, blue for the sky and sea, and white for our clouds. A green, white, and blue circle floating on a black background also suggests the planet Earth, symbolising our connection with the wider world. I have chosen the 1:2 ratio to retain one element of our current flag. This is very similar to my previous "Our Place" design, but the motif is closer to the fly than the hoist.
