Last year, the Prime Minister of New Zealand suggested that we should replace the flag with a new, updated design. He invited everyone in New Zealand to come up with their own flag design and submit it.
For this activity, it is your turn to design a new flag. Use any drawing programme that you wish. I would recommend the Flag Designer website. It allows you to create a flag in three easy steps. When you are done, take a screenshot of your flag and post it on your blog. Here is an example:
To earn full points you must describe the flag, in words, below the picture. Please tell us what is on the flag and what inspired your design.

This flag inspired me by the way that New Zealand had different cultures. The cultures are Maori, Maori European, Asians and Pacific languages ( Tonga, Samoa, Fiji and more! ) I think this should be the flag New Zealand.

    Great job on these activities. Your flag looks amazing. I like how you have a red and yellow checkered background. Keep up the good work.
