    The white feather is getting mixed up with the silver fern. John key is nominating the white feather, becouse he’s all banging on about the ANZAC ( five eyes). The white feather is actualy silver, becouse back in the day, it was the seagull feather that was used for nation building humiliation.

    “Maybe there is some reason for flags in 2015 but I can’t think of a good one.”

    This relates to the simplistic designs we seem to be restricted to. Historically flags were used so that soldiers could avoid killing other soldiers who were on the same team. They had to be simple and recognizable over a decent distance. Bold colours and patterns were important.

    The nortical traditions are still alive and we’ll, and I have first hand experience of electronic technology failing when it’s mixed with salt water.

    The White Feather Flag.

    I would like to register my negative careing about this option. It is loaded with baggage, that could effect the New Zealand armed forces recruitment drives, for historic reasons, along with a whole lot of other tins of worms.

    What does black signify about the New Zealand identity?

    The mongrel game for gentlemen to watch.

    I think at this point I’d favor the second option. Ferns, koru, kiwi, stars, clouds, the island shapes, large bands of primary colors etc. At least it won’t have to be redone later.

    Its also important to have whatever natural icons stylized to symplisity. There will be times, when the flag will need to be hand made.

    What’s more important than flags? The blue mushrooms on the fifty dollar note. And the bird calls on the National radio.

    We'll, I suspect some patriotism, is projected out of fear.

    I would in fact argue that the most patriotic thing you can believe is that your country is capable of being better.

    We should probably stop showing off about fixing everything with number 8 wire. It's nothing to be proud of.

  • Envirologue: Too Big to Fail – Why…, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    * as a complete aside one of the pictures on our website at the moment – the one with the blue light shining on some fruit swirling in water – is a machine called The Turbulator – which is bloody noisy and is right outside my office door!

    Thankyou for the introduction. I want a Turbulator that’s built into a modified AG jar:)

    I like the fruit preserving process. Being an addition to the traditional sugar preserving systems and all that. This would be a good product for offshore sailers and mountain explorers, but one thing bothers me about marketing it as a general convenience food, as per the video.

    The plastic packaging.
