In my opinion


Red/Blue looks like the backdrop to a labour vs National voting poll (or a rural NZ meatworks)

Black/white fern and blue/black fern don't inspire me

black/white Koru...is ok. At least it's a bit distinctive and would be identifiable from a distance

They're all bloody awful. But if anything, I'd vote hypno flag for lols. My guess is the Weet-Bix flag will win. Ugh.

For me, the choice is whether to write "Fuck you John Key" on the ballot paper and have my vote counted as informal, or boycott the referendum altogether.

Black & white is a bit boring. Red & blue vs black & blue has practically made it a Labour vs National competition. National voters will be unduly smug if they score the flag without the red patch, so I'm leaning towards the reddy just to get under their skin.

In the end, I'd be content with any of them. I'm just glad there's no toothpasty pastel colours or ferns that look like zips. The eternally grumpy majority would've hated all the options when the old flag was picked as well.

I'm glad that we have got down to 4 options:
1) Not bothering to vote.
2) Writing in Tino Rangatiratanga or one of the dozens of better options.
3) Voting for the less likely to win in hope to make the vote meaningless.
4) Defacing with colourful language about the poor taste of designers and the board.

All are shit but if I were forced to choose I'd pick fern or koru. I'd rather the fern if it were the same style as in the second one.

Ignoring the whole national/blue thing (that i dont think anyone actually noticed before one person pointed it out), I kind of like the black/blue fern now I think. It retains the southern cross, which im into, and looks better than the blue and red.

I like the koru, but I liked the other koru designs more.

there were heaps of better koru designs, not into this one at all.
i dont like the one with red, so black southern cross and fern for me.

would prefer the koru or the black/white fern to the weetbix labour/nat one, thats the only one that might bum me out a bit, but anything is better than the union jack

Fuck you cunts. I'm not voting for any of your faggy shit designs!

I found this entertaining, and I probably even agree. White Pyramid is too easily mocked:

Maori broadcaster Tu Harawira has told the 24-hour Flag Summit that he disagrees with the popular 'Red Peak' flag because it symbolises "white deciding where the colours will go".

So we've got the most All Black like flag, silver fern on black. If this was part of a wider constitutional debate about the role of the monarchy, the status of the Treaty of Waitangi etc I could maybe get behind it, but instead it's more like a corporate rebranding exercise. This is the same government that reintroduced anachronistic knighthoods.

I guess I'd vote for the current flag, but I guess this is what we're going to be stuck with

The red peak (lack of) popularity really illustrates the hidden social filter bubble thingy pretty well. At least with punkas you know where you stand.

red peak was not the one, stupid soulless angular design, would have voted for it over the current one tho.

jesus, i just read a stuff article about the 'the ensign' debate, where the reporter or journalist or whatever the dumbass calls himself, described the siver fern as 'fauna', trying to make himself seem intelligent, by using what he probably thinks is an obscure word, and in fact making himself seem retarded.

this one was my choice

So at this point in time this seems like a pretty awful flag, but in 20+ years when JK is long gone, how much do you think we'll care?
