The referendum to decide on the New Zealand flag will begin next week on the 3 March. People will be asked to choose between the most preferred flag design selected in the first referendum (see photo) and the current flag. The flag that receives the most votes will be the official flag of New Zealand.
Richie McCaw has called for a change in New Zealand’s flag. The All Black great took to social media to express his opinion.
McCaw posted a photo of the current New Zealand flag and the Australian flag hanging side-by-side at the final clash in the 2015 Rugby World Cup in Twickenham, England.
“This is the moment when I decided a new flag would be great for our country. Running out at Twickenham and seeing the two flags looking so similar. The silver fern has always been the special symbol on the All Black jersey that represents who we are as kiwis, so the new flag with a silver fern as a part of it would be a great option I believe.”
Do you agree with Richie??
