The Government of my country have decided that we need a new flag. Apparently the new flag, if the country votes to change it, will be a “Brand” that can be used as a marketing tool around the globe.
Here in the Hall of Memories at the National War Memorial in Wellington is no place for a Brand.
I agree! Those men fought and died for New Zealand, not a corporate brand! And they’re spending over $26 MILLION! Time to ditch the pet projects – pandas! – and get back to keeping people warm, healthy and happy. This government has its priorities totally screwed.
Well said. I didn’t much like the NZ flag until I was shown the alternatives. Now when I see our flag flying I think, “I rather like you.”
Our flag needs to have dignity as well as representing our country. It is so much more than a Brand.
Couldn’t agree more, Lyn!
It is a STUPID idea to change the flag. And your point about is very well made. I thought the silver fern was our brand? It’s good enough surely. There must be better things the government can do with our tax money.
$26 million dollars minimum is a lot of money that could be put to much better use in our country. As you say the silver fern is already our Brand.
