What is wrong with being true to our anglo-saxon roots as indicates by our existing flag?

I hope the Kiwi's do change their flag because it will hopefully embarrass our politicians into starting the ball rolling in Aus.

Re: New Flag For New Zealand?

Might as well; the values and traditions behind the flags are just about gone. What was once treason, perversion, larceny and foolishness are now revered, even mandatory. Turn the coats, have a ball.

Ps 139:9-10 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Re: New Flag For New Zealand?

Although interesting, there appears to be no relevance to cruising therefore thread closed.

If your attitude resembles the south end of a bull heading north, it's time to turn around.
