Last week, the flag consideration project released a list of places where both flags for the March referendum will be flown.
Despite a member of the panel, Malcolm Mulholland, living in Palmerston North, there are only two points listed where both will be raised so we can compare them.
Are they high-profile central sites, such as The Square, The Lido, the hospital, UCOL, Massey University, Arena Manawatu, the Plaza...Nah, none of the above.
Site one is at Fonterra’s Fitzherbert Science Centre building way out on Dairy Farm Rd – and only at the weekends, and the other is at a house on Willowstream Gr tucked down the back of Cloverlea.
These are the city’s only official listed sites so far, and Manawatu’s... and for all of Manawatu-Whanganui. Levin on the other hand has three listed flag sites.
So, not taking our region’s choice too seriously then.
