Another Spectrum

Personal ramblings and rants of a somewhat twisted mind

Where’s our flag?

Leave a comment

As the 2018 Commonwealth Games draws to a close on the Gold Coast, one thing has struck me. When the TV cameras pan over the spectators we see:

The English supporters waving this:
England

The Kenyan supporters waving this:
Kenya

The Canadian supporters waving this:
Canada

And of course, the Australian supporters waving this:
Australia

So it might be reasonable to assume the Kiwi supporters would be waving this:
New_Zealand

 

Wrong!

 

Instead you’ll see them waving this:
silver-fern-flag

We had a flag referendum couple of years ago and decided to retain the current flag. So why do we seem to have a reluctance to fly it?
