The top three at Rate the Flag when I checked last night were:

Pikopiko Southern Cross (#7297)

Designed by: Geoffrey Joe

This is a re-bound of Grant Pascoe’s ‘Pikopiko’ (https://www.govt.nz/browse/engaging-with-government/the-nz-flag-your-chance-to-decide/gallery/design/5641) with the added sky blue and southern-cross.

Maori And Nz/Euro (#2305)

Designed by: Jeffy James (On John Ansell’S Website)

It’s a combination of Maori and NZ/Euro reflecting the Treaty of Waitangi and the way NZers live like my family with both NZ/Euro and Maori family members. It’s arty and stylish and not colonial looking.

By Chris Roberts:

Simple. Modern. Clean. Distinctive.

The two contrasting colours used are white and deep blue. White is used for the stars of the Southern Cross and the rolling cloud. The deep blue background represents both the clean skies and the Pacific Ocean surrounding New Zealand.

The Flag Consideration Panel is inviting people to upload designs for a new flag.

There are more than 4000 in the gallery already.

The three most preferred when I checked  Rate the Flag yesterday were:

Panekiretanga (#10279)

By Martyn Bennett

the blue represents the sky,
the white is the cloud and reflects the Maori name Aotearoa
green is for the land.

Manawa (The Peoples Choice) Blue Sky Version (#681)

 By OtisFrizzell
This is another version of my design. The Southern Cross on the blue background pays homage to the current flag, but the maori design element replaces the Union Jack.

Coru And Southern Cross (#2473)

By Otis Frizzell

simple. the southern cross is ” part of NZ” the coru is “part of NZ”

I’ve looked at the second and third several times and can’t spot any difference – what am I missing?

The top three when last I checked were:

Coru And Southern Cross (#2473)

Designed by: Otis Frizzell

simple. the southern cross is ” part of NZ” the coru is “part of NZ.

 Designed by: Kevin Lynch

2 ISLANDS, 1 NATION is a design that brings together all the unifying aspects of our great country while still respecting the history of a previous flag. This design represents the 2 islands, The North Island (top Koru), the long white cloud (angled line) and the South Island (bottom Koru). The colours are a tribute to the previous flag but also represent sky (blue) and the land (red).

June 12, 2015

The Flag Consideration Panel is inviting people to upload designs for a new flag.

There are more than 3000 in the gallery already.

Rate The Flag lets you choose between different options.

The top three now are:

Southern Cross on Black by W. Samuels; A Piece of History by Monico B. Faller, Jr.; and Silver Fern Black and White by Alofi Kanter

Southern Cross On Black (#6501)

This design incorporates the southern cross in the national colours of black and white.

The southern cross is retained in the same position as it is in the current New Zealand flag, with the addition of the fifth star of the constellation for visual balance.

A predominantly black flag would be unique on the world stage, bold and extremely identifiable.

A Piece Of History 3 (#5032)

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, Hawke’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.

Silver Fern Black & White (#9991)

Just the Silver Fern. Black and white. On a flag 1:2. Saying loud and clear: New Zealand.

The concept is similar to that of Kyle Lockwood. This design is simple and pure, without added stars, using the national colour instead of traditional ones.
