Change the NZ Flag
This is the site of the NZFlag.com Trust - a Trust established to promote
debate about New Zealand's national identity and, in particular, about
New Zealand's flag. We believe that the time has come for New Zealanders

- to respect and reflect our history as a nation, to represent us to others
as we would we would like them to see us and, importantly, to carry us
forward with our hopes and aspirations for New Zealand's future.

I was a proud Kiwi, and I was proud to wear the silver fern. In my view the silver fern we wore captured our nation's identity perfectly - it has strong historic meaning for this country and also could take us proudly into the future.
My preference is for New Zealanders to choose an internationally recognisable symbol of New Zealand - such as the fern or the kiwi - for our flag, rather than continue with the current ensign.
