OPINION: The recent interest in a New Zealand flag has prompted us to submit the following design - featuring a kiwi.

A kiwi on a blue background which represents the ocean that surrounds us and incorporating the Southern Cross.

The kiwi avoids any ethnic, political or racist problems. New Zealanders abroad are known as "kiwis". Our currency is known as the "kiwi dollar". Our armed forces use the kiwi emblem.

And it is nothing like the Australian flag.
