New Zealand flag: New Zealanders select preliminary winner
December 11 , 2015
In a referendum on New Zealand's possible new flag, the people of the country have selected as the preliminary winner a blue and black design with the silver fern over four other short listed contenders. As per media reports, a similar-looking red, white and blue design was the runner up. However, the final results will be announced on Tuesday after late and overseas votes are counted. In March a second referendum will be held to decide whether the country keeps the existing flag or adopts a new one.
