Voting begins for New Zealand's flag

  • Nov 20, 2015 - Voting has opened in New Zealand as the conservative government led by Prime Minister John Key has sought to change the flag of New Zealand. The current flag of the country, which has fluttered for more than 100 years, features Britain’s Union Jack. The people of the country have a choice of five designs that could replace New Zealand’s flag. They will vote on their favorite design. The chosen design will then compete with the existing flag in a flag referendum that would be held in 2016. The voting will end on December 11.
