New Zealand is about to spend 27.5 million dollars on two referendums because the Union Jack is so 1990’s. A group of “respected New Zealanders”will sit on a Flag Consideration Panel. These poor sods only get paid $650 per day, better not quote me on that I am too lazy to look it up. Anyway I just knocked this design up, it is a clear winner. I just saved our rock star economy 27 odd million. No more two minute noodles for us.
