New Zealand may get a new flag
March 12 , 2014
It's time for New Zealand to adopt a new flag considering that the era of British colonialism has been long gone.
"The flag remains dominated by the Union Jack in a way that we ourselves are no longer dominated by the United Kingdom," Prime Minister John Key said. "I am proposing that we take one more step in the evolution of modern New Zealand by acknowledging our independence through a new flag."
Key mentioned that a flag that distinctly represents New Zealand would be appropriate and wants the public to give their thoughts on the new design. However, polls indicate that most people in the nation are happy with the current flag.
