The submissions for a new New Zealand flag closed yesterday. In my previous posts, I’ve shown half a dozen flags I’ve submitted. But I managed to squeeze in the above entry just before closing last night.
I like this design best of the ones I’ve submitted, and it has also garnered the most ‘likes’.
Oddly enough, I spent the least time in coming up with the concept of this flag. In fact, it came about by chance when I noticed that zooming in on one quadrant of an earlier flag design was actually more effective than the rather cluttered whole. I then added the southern cross and the curves of the Maori flag.
Anyway, that’s it for flags now, what with submissions being closed. I don’t expect to be chosen out of the thousands of entries, and am not even sure if the current flag needs changing at all. But it has been a fun artistic exercise to design a new flag.
