I do not claim to be an artist or a computer wizz, but I hereby attach 7 examples of ideas which I would like to be considered for a replacement flag. My drawings are accordingly not to scale, but am sure you get the intended idea .They may of course be changed around.
While my examples may be “busy” they should attract attention & easy identification, they cover most avenues.
Just to point out that the tear drop silver ferns on the 1st example are stylised to depict the North & South Island.
The Kiwi could also use the common stylised version if preferred.
I am not against retaining the Union Jack in the corner but prefer the Commonwealth Games logo as shown on example 1.
The Silver Fern & the Kiwi are our most recognised logos. Well known overseas & already used by many exporters & of course our International Sports Teams.
Rightly or wrongly we are commonly referred to as “Kiwis” when overseas. Once that is established most of the world appears to recognise that we are from New Zealand.
