This would make a good flag for New Zealand because it illustrates harmony between black and white. This suggests the order in which the Maori and European peoples arrived in new Zealand in so far as the Maoris were first in time and are represented in the upper black triangle, and the Europeans (pakeha) are represented by the white triangle. The use of red, black and white in the design is homage to the traditional Maori colours. This design retains the red stars with white outline from the Southern Cross on the current NZ flag. Thus preserving the best historical elements from the current flag. The silver fern in my flag is derived from that of the NZ rugby football union and is an internationally recognised symbol for NZ. It represents the unique natural environment of NZ and is an enduring symbol of growth, hope and strength. The Mountain (ie white triangle) reminds us of the international legacy and triumph of Sir Edmund Hilary upon the conquest of Mount Everest. Also, the white triangle represents the mountains of NZ and the black triangle symbolises its rich volcanic soil and the night sky.
