EITHER CREATE SOMETHING EYE CATCHING OR JUST FLAG IT - Part 2
The current New Zealand flag (above) incorporating the stars of the Southern Cross and the British 'Union Jack' in the top left hand corner.
This is a photograph taken by my son and posted on Instagram. It's an image by the talented Kiwi artist Dick Frizzel. The photo is of a Maori Tiki image expressed in the medium of a neon sign. It is vibrant, arresting and interesting. Maybe we could replace the Union Jack on the current NZ flag with this image. The image has its roots in the culture of our Tangata Whenua. It is strong, striking, vibrant, culturally relevant, unique to Aotearoa and distinctively Kiwi..... it would be a wordless way of having AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND written on our flag.
