Otaki RSA has received three offers of New Zealand flags to replace the one they had stolen from a war memorial on Anzac Day.

The flag was stolen about three hours after it was raised at a dawn service in front of the Main St war memorial on Friday.

The club raised the NZ flag and, for the first time, the Australian flag, which was left untouched.

The NZ flag was noticed missing at about 9am.

Police have not found the stolen flag but the club has received offers of a replacement and a spare from Farmlands in Otaki and another offer from a Wellington resident.

Otaki RSA president Colin Robertson was heartened by the offers from the community in response to ''such a miserable thing to do''.
