My design is elegantly simple, much like the flags of the greatest and oldest nations of the world. The deep blue represents the great Pacific Ocean which surrounds us but also the vast night sky which holds the Southern Cross (as shown in the top left). The four stars are white which looks amazing against the blue — much like a clear New Zealand night. These colours and what they represent are naturalistic, elemental, and will stand the test of time. Sporting culture is temporary, but our geography will always be significant.
