It has been a pleasure working with, and learning from you. Spare a thought for all those other poor cash registers we also destroyed along the way. Like this And this ... and this #goodtimes

And very well done by yourself too Rowan. It's been an amazing journey to date and the hard work and leadership to date has set Vend up for lasting success. I suspect you are actively turning down a host of directorship offers at the moment. Lance Wiggs Punakaiki Fund 021 526239 @lancewiggs >

Put a small silver fern in the top left black panel and a southern cross in the top right blue panel of the red peak flag and everybody will be happy!

Great posting ... I totally agree. It's been a short journey, even though it feels like ages since I first saw Red Peak and engaged with its story ... let's hope it'll carry on right to the end! Cheers, Roly. |//\\|

Rowan, I'm grateful for the time you have invested in championing the Red Peak flag. Following its journey has been a mixture of insight and pride coupled with an all to frequent dash of despair (when reading the Stuff comments). Red Peak or status quo (to at least give us/our children another chance of being bold an visionary in a subsequent decade).

Change the flag when all those who are currently and have fought & died defending it are dead and gone, not before

And it's not just the immigration ques. If you take that logic Liz, then do you also agree that Britain and NZ have already dishonoured the soldiers and their families? Would my ancestors feel honoured that even though they lived, fought and died under the British flag last century and before, that their mokopuna can not even choose to be in Britain longer than a tourist visa allows? But someone from Germany or Italy, or the 23 other EU states can easily settle and work and live there if they choose. How would our fallen soldiers from another era feel about that? That to me shows how close our ties really are these days...a token gesture at best. Honour the dead, of course, but that doesn't mean we have to hold onto a flag from another era.

Allan, Agree it is and will remain our national symbol, just as the springbok and protea remain the symbols of South Africa even after they changed their flag. Here are two further posts on this which you may find interesting: Cheers, Rowan

The silver fern is on our passports, medals, currencies, coat of arms & on every head stone at every RSA cemetery. It's our national symbol. The silver fern should be our flag.

I agree, it's just another angular flag amongst the multitude of angular flags. It won't be recognisable amongst the masses. At least the silver fern on black is unlike any other flag making it instantly recognisable. I don't buy the "we can't use a silver fern" argument. That's just a cop out.

I'd like a southern cross in the blue corner.

How about some stars in the blue! Now that would get a vote or two, Cheers

>I worry that one of them will be preferred over the current flag anyway. Which is of course the whole reason the style of referendum was chosen. Perfect for minority forced change.
