The National Government has decided that New Zealand will hold two referendums on whether to change the New Zealand flag.
The referendums will start at the end of next year and cost the country around $26 million.
The first referendum will be held at the end of next year, where three or four options will be put forward.
Those designs will be chosen by a Flag Consideration Panel, which will be chosen by MPs representing all political parties.
The second referendum in April 2016 will ask voters to choose between the winning design in the first referendum and the current flag.
Deputy Prime Minister Bill English will be the minister responsible for the process.
