After over thousands of submissions and months of dicussion, Kiwis can now see  the long list of 40 possible alternatives to our current flag.

The Flag Consideration Panel has narrowed down the list from over 10,000 subbmissions.

Are you in favour of a change? If so, which of the 40 should we change it to?

Do we even need a fresh flag or would you rather the money spend on debating the issue was put to use elsewhere?

Our flag debate has raged for years with a number of different options put forward.

Prime Minister John Key's personal preference is for a silver fern on a black background.

Former Prime Minister Helen Clark favours a version which keeps the Southern Cross but removes the Union Jack. 

What would you like to see flying for our country? And why?

Do you agree with Mana leader Hone Harawira that the Tino Rangatiratanga flag better represents our nation or do you have an idea for something completely new?
