The flag contains 4 colours that all relate to New Zealand. Admittedly my colours arnt the right shade but you get the general idea. The Blue represents the Oceans surrounding us. The green our land which is know around the world for it pure green image. and the Black is the night sky and the colour worn by teams representing New Zealand not just in sport but a wide range of competitions and conventions. In the middle of the night sky sits the southern cross representing our place in the world and of course they are red, a nod to the original flag which has served us well until now.
