I'm all for a change. The silver fern seems like a good choice to me, as for being a sports symbol well I think the silver fern has been growing in New Zealand a bit longer than the all blacks have been around.

Also everyone seems to be debating about our own ability to recognise our own which is a good point but if you showed our flag and the australian flag to anyone from anywhere else(australia included) I bet they wouldn't notice the difference or at least think they're from different countrys.

But then again a dildo would generate more interest I feell...

True it does'nt matter what the symbol itself is as long as they believe in it.


I think you have us confused with America, New Zealanders don't give a damn about the flag or this bullshit patriotism crap that the yanks use to control the masses, the flag is a sign of our dependence on the UK, something which is a complete waste of space IMO.
Theresa a lot of NZ'ers who seems to buy into the proud to be a kiwi crap, and believe we are better than the rest of the world.

It's got nothing to do with the flag - the reason those people went to war is because the government forced them to :(

And quite frankly, if you're getting shot at, anyone who isn't firing at you becomes a de facto friend regardless of flag of any other perceived commonalities.
