Outdated and boring
Creativity. Independence. Intelligence. New Zealand has all of these characteristics, so why don’t we show it on our flag?
In this piece of writing I will be informing you how our flag is too similar to other countries and explaining how we are no longer a part of the British empire, so we no longer need the Union Jack on our flag.
Numerous foreigners get confused between the New Zealand and Australian flag – because they almost look identical. Therefore, we should change our flag. It is a known fact that New Zealand has the same colour scheme as 22 other countries. How is that being creative?
The Union Jack is the national flag of the United Kingdom, formed by combining the red and white crosses of St George, St Andrew, and St Patrick and retaining the blue ground of the flag of St Andrew. The Union Jack is a symbol of unity; we are no longer a part of the British unity, so there is no need for the Union Jack on our flag.
I have just proved many points on why New Zealand should change their flag. Our flag is too similar to other countries and that we do not need the Union Jack. Be creative, be recognised and change our flag!
