With recent debate about the future of the New Zealand Flag, the Returned and Services Association (RSA) have said that they are preparing to do all it takes to fight for the current flag design. This debate comes after the formation of a 12-person committee instructed with the job to look into whether a change of flag is needed, before a public consultation and referendum begins.
The RSA strongly believes that this new committee is an unnecessary step forward. Especially as the review project is estimated to cost $26 million and the committee has been formed right before the ANZAC Day Commemorations. The RSA National president BJ Clark said they are looking to release a strategy in order to keep the current flag right after ANZAC day. The RSA’s passion for the old flag is in align with the history of New Zealand forces serving and sacrificing their lives under the flag, which to them is as relevant today as it was when troops landed in Gallipoli.

  1. I think the flag should stay the same it may be almost the same as australlia but it should still stay the same

  2. Why change the current NZ flag? There’s nothing wrong with it and our ancestors fought under this flag..leave it alone!!

  3. we did a debate in class about whether to change the NZ flag or keep it the same. I agree on changing it and i disagree with keeping it.so there! 🙂 🙂 😉

  4. Keep the flag! I say the falg is great as it is, even though it looks like Australia’s, i dont mind the Australia bit because we are like sibling countries! It should be similar anyway! plus as people have said our ancestors fought under this flag! for THIS. VERY. COUNTRY. Keep it the way it is please! 😀 🙂 😉 🙂 😀
