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 choose a flag which represents New Zealanders as we see ourselves today - 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.

Why Change?

Pauline Gillespie, Radio Personality
I have always been a fan of our country, but never a fan of our current flag. For me, someone who has lived overseas, the thing that profoundly reminds me of New Zealand is our boldness, our depth and our contrast.

The Union Jack was pertinent when we were but an outlying colony, but we are no longer under the financial or historical wing of anyone. We are a land of diverse people from every corner of the earth. We are New Zealand. Bold as night, as silver as the ocean. No man ever fought for our flag. He fought for the spirit and soul of our unique land and our unique people. Let the flag represent the bold and interesting individuals that we are!
