I like the black flag with the silver fern because then you know it's New Zealand and not mixed up with Australia.

John said...

I like the black flag but not with New Zealand written on it. I just like the silver fern on the black background.

Hello!
Mr Kennedy and I voted for the black flag with the silver fern. It says New Zealannd to us. We agree with John that you don't really need 'New Zealand' written on it.
I can't wait to hear which one you vote for.

Hello,

I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama in the United States. I would like to take your poll, but I wanted to learn a little more about the meaning of each flag. First, I looked up the meaning of the present flag. I noticed there have been many attempts to change it. Is that what started this poll? Also, what does the fern mean?

I like the black flag with the silver fern because it doesn't look like a traditional flag from a country. Out with the old and in the with new!

Hello Kids with a View
I like both flags however I am going to go against all the other commnets and choose the traditional flag. I like how it similar to our flag and I feel that it links us more closely as neighbours. I am very interested to know how you feel.

I am in favor of the silver fern. I think it's a great change and will definitely differentiate between other countries. The fern leaf has been widely recognized to signify "New Zealandness" for over a century and the emblem is on the badge of most army units. So, what's wrong with a little change?

Thanks

I like the flag that we have now because I like the blue colour and the red stars.

I like the black flag because I like the All Blacks and the Warriors and the Silver Fern is my favourite.

Joshua said...

I like the black flag because of the silver fern and I like the All Blacks and they wear black and white.

Lindsey Gipson said...

Hello guys, my name is Lindsey Gipson and I am student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama, in the United States. I am interested in the "New Zealand Flag Debate". After reading some of the other votes I think I am out numbered but I like the traditional flag. Although I do agree with John the black and silver one would be better without New Zealand written on it.

Hello,

I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. I am in favor of the black flag with the silver fern. The black flag is unique so people will not mistake New Zealand's flag with the flag for Australia. I also like how the fern stands out against the black background. The flag is very eye catching!

Hi! I'm Kelly from Dr. Strange's EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. I voted for the traditional flag because of what each color and star on it represents. Here is a website I found about Crux http://www.oneminuteastronomer.com/1985/constellation-crux-southern-cross/ and here is a link to my class blog if you would like to view it http://ficarellikellyedm310.blogspot.com/.

My name is Kathy Zoghby from the University of South Alabama, EDM310. I think you should have your own flag. I like the black flag with the feather on it. However, I think it should have more than one feather.

I think the "Silver Fern" distinguishes us! As a KIwi born Indian I really think that the "Silver Fern" truly tells us what is New Zealand.

Mohana said...

Hey There,

I really like the Black flag with the white fern, but it would be cool if it didn't have the words.
I live how it separates us from the other countries under the British rule.

Katelyn Callahan said...

I like the black flag with the silver fern. I think the flag is unique and will stand out!

I like the black one the best but i imagined if you seen it on a poster will all the other flags on it it would stick out. Plus i just like the idea of keeping the original flag.

Gretchen McPherson said...

Hello,
I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama, and I chose the black flag with the silver fern leaf. Honestly, a flag that has such commonly-used symbols, such as the Union Jack and red/white stars, although important, can be indistinguishable, at least at a glance, from other countries. Like the flag of Japan, just a white flag and a red circle, the new choice is simple and very distinct. I would know it was New Zealand's flag at a glance! Awesome!!

Hello,
I am a student at the University of South Alabama in the United States. I am enrolled in a class named EDM 310 and Dr. Strange is my teacher. I voted for the flag in black with the silver fern. I voted for that flag because it was unique and different. I think that the black flag will set New Zealand apart from everybody else.

Latisha Williams said...

Hey! My name is Latisha Williams. I attend the University of South Alabama, where I am currently taking EDM310 with Dr. Strange. I pick the traditional flag simply because of the colors and their meaning.

Mrs Frazer said...

I prefer the Silver fern flag,because it is eye catching,I also like the black and white colours.

Ashira said...

I like the blue flag because it has the red and white stars and it has meaning. The white means peace and honesty. The red means strength and bravery. The Southern Cross represents the countries in the southern hemisphere only they can see the stars. Our flag has four stars on it.

Michelle Loupe said...

Hi!
My name is Michelle Loupe. I attend the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. I am currently in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. I was just wanting to say that I really like the black flag with the silver fern. I think this flag will really stand out, and it would be easier to distinguish amongst others. Both of the flags were very nice though.

Carrie Fairley said...

Hi! My name is Carrie Fairley and I am a student at the University of South Alabama. I picked the black flag with the fern because I think that may be a more personal item that represents your country. It will stand out from the rest and it looks great!

Brittany Smith said...

Hello! My name is Brittany and I am a student at the University of south Alabama. I am currently enrolled in EDM 310 with Dr. Strange. I believe I like the black flag better. Personally I just like black and silver. Why is this pole being taken. Will our opinion count for anything? I am just curiuos.

Jeffrey Dorsey said...

Ashira's Dad said...

I like the flag that has the red and white stars on it. Maybe we could also put the Silver Fern in one corner

Ashira said...

Taylor Lane said...

Hi, I am one of the many students in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. I voted for the black flag because it distinguishes your country from others. It's different and that Union stamp is on a number of other flags. I'll be keeping up with the news to see if the black flag wins out. Thanks for the post.

Kristen Phelps said...

Hello!
My name is Kristen Phelps and I am currently in EDM 310 with Dr. Strange at the University of South Alabama, in Mobile, Alabama, USA. I liked both flags but I voted for the Present flag! I like the colors and its traditional look. After reading several of the other posts though, I do agree that the black flag is different and might stand out a little better! This was a really interesting poll! Thank you, for allowing us to participate!
