Ki­wis flag their flag op­tions


THE fi­nal four al­ter­na­tive de­signs have been re­vealed as New Zealand con­sid­ers chang­ing its na­tional flag.

The Flag Con­sid­er­a­tion Panel whit­tled down the four de­signs (pic­tured) from a long list of 40. New Zealan­ders will get to rank the four in a ref­er­en­dum later this year.

Ferns dom­i­nate the de­signs, with three of the four op­tions fea­tur­ing one in some form.

There is a black and white sil­ver fern, a sil­ver fern on a red and blue back­ground with the South­ern Cross, a black and blue vari­a­tion of the same de­sign, and a black and white koru de­sign.
