By just looking at my NZ Flag design, you will remember a piece of history of New Zealand.
The fern represents New Zealand. The left side of the fern represents the North Island and the nine leaves represent the nine Regions of the North Island namely, Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawkeâ€™s Bay, Taranaki, Manawatu-Whanganui, and Wellington.
The right side of the fern represents the South Island and the seven leaves represent the seven Regions of the South Island namely, Tasman, Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast, Canterbury, Otago and Southland.
The five stars of the Southern Cross represent the first five cities of New Zealand under the Municipal Corporations Act 1876 namely, Dunedin (1865), Christchurch (1868), Wellington (1870), Auckland (1871) and Nelson (1874).
The blue colour symbolises the sky, pacific sea, peace and serenity. The white colour symbolises purity and cleanliness. The green colour symbolises the nature, trees, forests, grass, etc.
