    ....the thing with flags is you can see them from both sides and that could cause confusion

    I'm going all Black Hole / White Hole with this
    the verso shall be inverted colour-wise
    Data in

    Comments on a flag

    Steel melancholia...
    ...on the road from Chambe to Vouleme
    See. Someone does think of the children...

    Key & Co have always had this thing about National Standards – this embodies their contribution…

    will have to vote for the Koru.

    But it's not even a good Koru!!
    Smacks of Illustrator/FreeHand, bezier curves and 'spiral tools'
    cold, clinical, I know, I've done enough of it myself...

    Let's go with <ta daaaa>
    The Crema de la Creme flag

    Ferndale: a Clip Art Nation…
    all four look digitally designed,
    there is no humanity to any of them…

    and how hard would it be to have a one step, two question referendum?

    <Picture of current flag:>
    Q1; Do you wish to change the current NZ flag?
    _ No. Thank you for your time.*
    _ Yes. Go to Q2

    Q2: Which of the following four would you like to replace the current flag.
    <pictures of the Ferndale Four>
    (Tick or circle one: A B C D )

    all you’d need would be over 50% of Q1 answers to be Yes to activate choices from Q2

    *or it could give people who vote No the chance to still indicate a preference – (Q2: If change is inevitable, which of the following four would you prefer to replace the current flag.) – which would be nicer, and the right thing to do
    (just as putting No first on Q1 for those lazy ‘first option fillers’..

    Why the two-step?
    …unless it is the Entropy Waltz…?
    …take your partners
    dose a dose
    d0s-a-dos

    ‘bleak clipart’

    Snap, Sam...

    …this one would be my pick.

    is it a fluke it looks a bit like a Trematode ?
    or a spearhead…
