See all of the top flag design finalists as well as some of the rejected flag designs here: http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/11/asia/new-zealand-flag-ref-vote/index.html (Including bizarre ones like a kiwi bird shooting a green laser beam from its eye, and a stick drawing of a deranged cat!)
Would you like to see the current New Zealand flag replaced with the Silver Fern flag? If you could design your own flag, what would it look like?
