Vote for New Zealand's new flag

The entire populace thinks it is a total bore, but our prime minister wants to go out with something permanent on his record: he wants the country to have a new flag.

Quite smart, really.  Two problems:  (1) the Union Jack is a bit outdated, as we lost most contact with Britain, which backed out of being the "Mother Country" in favor of the EU; and (2) people confuse it with the Aussie flag, which is the same but with extra stars (and their stars are not as pretty).

And here is the 40-strong long list for the replacement:

Possible new flags narrowed down to 40
